Buxton and Sanoa s trade bait? Depends on the return. Both are becoming a tad more valuable, yet still not expensive enough that the Twins need to throw a lot of money at them. Have to think about what they MIGHT still become and at what cost. You got Buxton for three more seasons, Sano for two more after this season. They took a hit in value after 2018. Still not CHOICE pieces in the cheme of things. Wish replacements were a tad closer. Big decision for both side this winter.

 

After a brutal start Sano has an OPS of of .914, (which would be 7th in AL if he had enough PA to qualify) and Buxton's real only hold back is he cannot seem to stay healthy, he's having a better season than he did in 2016 when he put up 5.1 WAR.I would say they are both pretty choice pieces.

You're lamenting that replacements aren't closer for a guy who has two more years of control and another guy that has three more years of control?

 

What about Rosario? Kirilloff will likely be ready in a year or so, that's a pretty good replacement offering. Lewis isn't far behind him.

 

No team has replacements ready for 24-26 year old players at every position. If they did, that team would have the most historically awesome minor league system ever.
