Buster Olney's recent blog post stated some very interesting offensive players that can be potential candidates this offseason because of the influx of a strong Starting pitcher FA market and the lack of positional players. Of the players he lists one particular candidate, Jason Heyward, seems like a fascinating option for the twins to go after. He states that because of 2015 being his final year under contract and him being somewhat of an offensive enigma, he is a candidate to be traded. In my opinion he is the perfect candidate for the twins to target. He immediately upgrades an OF defense that ranked near the bottom and brings a solid top of the order bat that can provide power, speed, and on base percentage. The asking price would be very steep and I don't think it would be viable if we dont lock him up to a long term deal as well but He would be perfect for the twins organization.
Some possible trade candidates that I think that would peak their interests would be Brian Dozier as they dont have a solid solution at 2nd base and/or Trevor Plouffe. We would probably have to include something else like a B grade pitching prospect but i definitely think we should make the leap. Stick Rosario or Santana at second and open the door for Sano to take over 3rd base at some point in the mid season. What are your guy's thoughts?
