The Twins can't say enough good things about Kurt Suzuki.

Suzuki couldn't be happier with his decision to sign a one-year deal with the Twins this offseason.

So, what about an extension? After all, it was only about a month further into the 2012 season (June 29) that the Twins gave a two-year, $7 million extension to catcher Ryan Doumit after signing him for one year at $3 million.

"Too early," a person close to the situation said.

For his part, Suzuki is open to anything after playing for three different teams since late August.

"It's something that I think you'd be crazy not to listen," Suzuki said. "You're always open to those things. The thing with me, being a free agent at the end of the year, if you keep it up you could put yourself in a good spot."

Suzuki entered Wednesday's game ranked third among all regular catchers with a .363 on-base percentage and his combined on-base/slugging percentage of .769 ranked fifth. He also has has served as a valuable mentor to 25-year-old rookie Josmil Pinto.

After signing a one-year, $2.75 million deal that includes $500,000 in bonuses, Suzuki could be in line to cash in this offseason if he keeps hitting like this.
