The third type of trade package –

If the Twins felt the need to land more than one player as a part of a package deal from a team, they could bite the bullet and part ways with one of the top prospects. Sending out Royce Lewis or Alex Kirilloff along with a couple of lower-tier prospects should be more than enough to get the job done.

With the Twins one of the biggest surprises in baseball, the front office may be hesitant to part ways with their future and rightfully so. The Twins locked up Jorge Polanco long term which may be one of the best signings in a long time around Twins territory so the need for Lewis soon isn’t a necessity. Though, if you ask me, the Twins should only part ways with a top prospect if they land a player with some team control.

I can’t see them parting ways with the future for a rental type of player who’s in the last year of his contract unless it’s a future HOF. Of course, with a plethora of solid prospects in the organization, the Twins’ future trade packages aren’t exactly crystal clear. What would you do if you were in charge? Anything necessary to land the star? Top-prospects off-limits? Let me know in the comments and I’ll let you know what I think.
