Bobby Wilson, C, Chicago Cubs

August 30, 2018: Traded by the Minnesota Twins to the Chicago Cubs for Chris Gimenez and player to be named or cash.

Bobby Wilson hit .178 with two home runs and 16 RBI this season with the Twins. He was activated from the disabled list on Friday but has not yet seen playing time as a Cub. Wilson is now the fourth catcher on the Cubs current roster.

Drew Butera, C, Colorado

July 31, 2013: Traded by the Minnesota Twins to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Miguel Sulbaran (minors).

Drew Butera has appeared in nine games for the Rockies and his hitting .190 in 14 at-bats since being acquired from the Royals on August 31st. He is a long-shot to make the post-season roster.

JT Chargois, RHP, Los Angeles Dodgers

February 23, 2018: Selected off waivers by the Los Angeles Dodgers from the Minnesota Twins.

JT Chargois has a 2-4 record, with a 3.45 ERA in 31.1 innings over 38 appearances. He came off the DL on September 24th after missing more than a month with a neck injury. Although activated, Chargois has not seen action since August 20th and is not expected to make the cut for the post-season roster.

Brian Dozier, 2B, Los Angeles Dodgers

July 31, 2018: Traded by the Minnesota Twins to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Luke Raley (minors), Devin Smeltzer (minors) and Logan Forsythe.

In 46 games with the Dodgers, Brian Dozier has a line of .176 .289 .324, with an OPS of .613. Dozier has been platooning with Kiké Hernández the over last 21 games, getting starts only against left-handers. Hernández is hitting .328 for the month of September.

Post-season is a great time to be a major league baseball fan. Maybe one of our former favorites can play a leading role in for the eventual 2018 World Series champions. I’d personally like to see Eduardo Escobar win a ring and wear it next season as a Twin.
