It was announced today utility player Brent Lillibridge was designated for assignment by the Boston Red Sox to make room for outfielder Carl Crawford. Lillibridge was one of two players traded to Boston for third baseman Kevin Youkilis. I love how Lillibridge plays the game on both sides of the diamond. He has struggled with the bat over the past few seasons and is only hitting .165/.212/.177 in 59 games this season. Lillibridge is still only 28 and should at least be considered by the Twins brass. The Twins could use the infield depth and in the right situation Lillibridge might be very successful. The Twins have the worst record (37-52) in the American League so they have first shot at claiming Lillibridge.
