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!
