I was thinking the other day...

 

Do the Twins have anyone on their current roster that can help recruit a 2019 free agent? 

 

Last year I know Jonathan Schoop was instrumental in bringing Nelson Cruz to Minnesota. I wonder which connections the Twins front office can leverage to help sign players this offseason. 

 

Here are a few I found when doing some research today: 

 

- Zach Wheeler and Jake Odorizzi were teammates on the 2012 USA Futures Team.

- Thad Levine was the Assitant GM on the Rangers that traded for Cole Hamels in 2015.

- Gerrit Cole and Marwin Gonzalez were teammates on the Astros in 2018. 

- Josh Donaldson follows Special Assistant of Baseball Operations, Torii Hunter on Instagram 

 

Please post your findings below!
