The Minnesota Twins will be looking to upgrade their roster between now and the MLB trade deadline, but who would they be willing to give up?
For the first time in a long time, the Minnesota Twins will be buyers at the MLB Trade Deadline. With a firm grasp on top of the American League Central, the Twins will be in the market to make several enhancements to their roster, mainly to fix a leaky bullpen and possibly an upgrade to their starting rotation.
While there are many names that will be floated out as potential acquisitions in the coming weeks, there is also the matter of who the Twins can give up to get them. In the past, the Twins have been reluctant to make the big move because of the future that their farm system has provided. In the case of Byron Buxton, that seems to be the right call, but for others it may be best to roll the dice.
Getting rid of the right players will be key in order to turn an ordinary move into a franchise changer. For example, do you think the Milwaukee Brewers have a lesser future after trading four prospects to obtain Christian Yelich? Sometimes, going all-in is the right thing to do.
