According to MLbtraderumors, the Yankees and Mariners have annouced a trade with James Paxton going to New York and Justus Sheffield and two other minor leaguers going to the Mariners.
This seems to set up that only about 7 teams intend to compete next year with all the rest in reset or rebuild mode.

Herrera - 3/42
One or two more RP types mid range 2/15 each

Oderizzi traded probably would have to absorb part of contra...

Mauer - retired
Santana and Morrison - bought out $2,000,000 total
Not offered contracts - Forsythe, Petit, Magill, Belisie, Sl...

Assumptions:
1. Joe Mauer retires
2. The FO decides the Twins are too far away to put a lot of money into next year.
3. With Gibson, Pineda, and Ordrizzi all having expiring contracts at the end of next year Twins decide to see what they have coming up, rath...
