By most accounts the Minnesota Twins are poised to be "sellers" rather than "buyers" as the Major League Baseball trade deadline looms closer. Given the contract situations and early season success for a handful of Minnesota Twins players, some names are starting to generate interest on the trade market.
Earlier today, Jon Morosi of the MLB Network dropped a nugget on a gigantic trade that is partially and might be entirely part of discussions between the Milwaukee Brewers and the MinnesotaTwins.
It's been known that the Brewers have mild interest in Twins second baseman Brian Dozier. Then it popped up earlier this week that Milwaukee might in fact be interested in both Brian Dozier AND Eduardo Escobar. Both of those players were mysteriously pulled early from yesterday's game against the Blue Jays.
Now today, thanks to Morosi, we're hearing that the deal might get even bigger, if desired by both sides, to include Twins starting pitcher Kyle Gibson.
#Brewers, #Twins already discussing the Minnesota infielders, and Twins RHP Kyle Gibson could be included if a larger deal materializes. Gibson has thrown 7+ IP in six of his last 10 starts -- the sort of reliability the #Brewers need right now. @MLB @MLBNetwork— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) July 25, 2018
If this is true, the Twins would need to get A HAUL in return. That said, if some of these players are expected to be dealt or leave in free agency after this season you might as well get what you can, while you can.
Sit tight gang, this could be a fun few weeks!
