Cleveland DFAed Franmil Reyes.  With the Outfield injuries is he a guy the Twins would claim to use atleast until Larnach and Garlick get healthy?  26 yr old with massive power (Sano like at bats tho) and contract is like 4 million for the year so around a million left. 

 

 

Tempting. When he’s right, he’s scary. But what went wrong?

Interesting idea.

Full confession, don't know how his glove is.

Bad 2022, but only 27yo tomorrow and with power and a solid quad slash line for his career until 2022. And the Guardians just gave up on him? Seems very strange to me.

Kepler and Celestino back are very good things. Gordon just keeps contributing. Jury is still very much out on Larnach and AK for the rest of the year. But Reyes is RH hitter, so his comp would be Garlick in this case.  I'd rather have the player I know, who has filled his role well thus far, if healthy and back. To me, it depends how Garlick is doing and when expected back. If there's uncertainty, then why not a flier on Reyes and hope to catch lightning?

The scouting report in OOTP, which they put some effort into and you are free to disregard, has him as terrible in the OF, a decent RF arm being the only redeeming feature.  The Guardians used him rarely out there, mainly DH.  If he can't hit either, and this year he hasn't, then he's of no value to anyone.  We have enough guys who profile best as DH already.

Aside from Buxton, there isn't anyone else on the team who is going to hit 20 HR this year. 

I'd take Reyes over Celestino and Garlick in a heartbeat, at least for the remainder of this year. This Twins bats are in a deep slump and I don't think this type of gamble would be the worst idea. I'd applaud of I saw the Twins make this move.

I wouldn't claim him but if nobody else does and they end up letting him go in 10 days I'd certainly consider it.  10 days is a long time.  Hard to imagine Larnach or Kiriloff won't suffer another injury by then--even if they're not playing.
