Santiago, who made $5 million last year, posted a 4.70 ERA with 144 strikeouts and 79 walks in 182 innings. The 29-year-old lefty was acquired by the Twins at the Aug. 1 non-waiver Trade Deadline in the deal that sent Ricky Nolasco to the Angels. Minnesota also sent $4 million to the Angels as part of the deal, which is exactly the difference between their two salaries in 2017, with Nolasco set to make $12 million.
Kintzler, 32, is coming off a solid season in which he filled in as closer with Glen Perkins out due to shoulder surgery. Kintzler posted a 3.15 ERA with 35 strikeouts in 54 1/3 innings, while registering 17 saves in 20 chances. He gets a raise on his base salary of $1.075 million last year, when he was signed to a Minor League deal before the season. Like Santiago, he'll also be a free agent after the season.
Gibson, eligible for arbitration for the first time, posted a 5.07 ERA with 104 strikeouts and 55 walks in 147 1/3 innings in 2016. He made $587,500 last year.
Pressly, also in his first year of arbitration, posted a 3.70 ERA with 67 strikeouts in 75 1/3 innings last year and he figures to be a big part of Minnesota's bullpen in 2017. The former Rule 5 Draft pick has a career 3.55 ERA in 208 innings and he earned $520,000 last season.
The Twins haven't been to an arbitration hearing since 2006 with right-hander Kyle Lohse.
Minnesota already agreed to a deal with shortstop Eduardo Escobar, signing him for $2.6 million in December. Trevor Plouffe and Tommy Milone were also eligible for arbitration, but they were outrighted early in the offseason.
