What impact will Kendrys Morales have?

The Minnesota Twins were the surprise franchise that ended up with noted free-agent slugger Kendrys Morales this weekend on a one-year contract. Morales, who hit 45 home runs the past two seasons for the Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels and shouldn’t have been unemployed to start with, isn’t going to the best home ballpark for what he does well, but at least he’s going to play regularly, likely at designated hitter. The last-place Twins could sure use him, and fantasy owners to a lesser degree, because this isn’t exactly Paul Goldschmidt, you know.
