Coming off a 14-win breakout season but still two years away from arbitration eligibility, Twins right-hander Jose Berrios would seem to be an interesting candidate for a multiyear contract.

The Twins, however, appear to be willing to continue going year to year with Berrios, who has agreed on a one-year pre-arbitration deal for $570,000, according to a person with direct knowledge. That’s a raise of $32,500 over Berrios’ 2017 pay.

Asked if there had been any talks about buying out the arbitration years that will begin in 2020, Berrios said, “Not yet.”

Lined up to become the Twins’ youngest Opening Day starter since Brad Radke in 1996, Berrios smiled when asked how receptive he’d be to a multiyear offer.

“This is the team that drafted me (in 2012) and gave me the opportunity to play in the major leagues,” said Berrios, 23. “If they want to (sign) me for a long time, I’d be excited about that.”

With 11 players on track for arbitration eligibility next winter, including core position players such as Byron Buxton, Miguel Sano, Max Kepler and Eddie Rosario, the Twins figure to enter extension talks with most of their young stars at some point.

“We don’t talk about that yet (as a group), but that’s in our minds,” said Berrios, who received a $1.55 million signing bonus out of high school. “We have to be ready for every opportunity.”

As for the chance to start on March 29 at Baltimore’s Camden Yards, where he tied a season-high with three homers allowed in 6 1/3 innings last May 24, Berrios would welcome that opportunity as well.

“They haven’t said anything about that,” he said. “It would be special for me in my young career to throw Opening Day. Every starting pitcher wants to be on the mound that first day. For now I have to prepare myself for every moment.”
