The Case for Yangervis Solarte Hey Everyone,

Yesterday I made a case for Addison Reed turning things around in 2019. Today I want to look at recently non-tendered free agent Yangervis Solarte and how he could fit nicely with the 2019 Minnesota Twins.

Contract Details (according to spotrac.com)
2017 Salary: $4,000,000
2018 Dead Money (Paid by the Blue Jays): $750,000

2019 Off-Season Plan - Free Agency Hey Everyone,
What a disappointing 2018 season. Besides a couple bright spots like Mauer's send off, Jake Cave, and deadline trades to bolster our prospect lot (minus the Pressly trade), games and news were tough to follow religiously for even the biggest Twins fans. But, the bright spot is it's the off-season now and the Twins are loaded with an arsenal...
