I would love to see the Twins bring in Rajai Davis to play left field and back up Buxton in center. It would be nice to add some needed speed back into this lineup.

 

Let Eddie Rosario & Robbie Grossman battle it out for the 4th outfielder spot.

I think I like Ryan Raburn better. In my opinion the Twins need a righty platoon partner for Rosario/Kepler. Raburn seems more likely to accept a platoon role and he destroys lefties. I think Davis will be looking for a full time gig seeing as his star is shining due to a single post season HR, however I don't think he can hit enough.

Agreed and disagree.

 

Big agree on Raburn more likely to accept a platoon role, as that's basically been his role the past 5 seasons now. Pretty sure I pined for Raburn on an occassion or two on BYTO.

 

Disagree on the Davis not being able to hit enough. While Raburn does have an edge in career OPS against lefties at the plate (.827 vs .780), they're nearly identical against righties, and Davis is better on the bases.

I think it would be a great signing for the Twins. It would give the Twins a stolen base threat and would be a nice lead off hitter for this team. And if he puts up a solid year he could have a little trade value in July.

He signed with the A's 1 year @ 6 million.

So much for that move. Just waiting to see who Oakland get for him when they flip him.

They have been there and done that with Davis. Trystan Magnuson and Danny Farquhar. I really do not see much more than that ever coming back for Davis

Correct. 4th OF types don't exactly bring massive returns at the deadline.
Papers...business papers.
