1 name that popped up certainly fits the criteria of knowledge and also a short-term stay, and he remains unsigned after filing for free agency last November. Even though Carlos Ruiz directed the Philadelphia Phillies into two pennants along with a World Series Championship, at thirty nine years old he would be considered ancient for the rocky requirements of an everyday catcher. That brings us back into the former Twins catcher with the French name, Matthew Lecroy. He has been off of the field for over 10 years and now is employed as a trainer in the Minor!eagues, therefore he clearly is not going to be the replacement Castro. No, the following Minnesota catcher will not be Lecroy, however it must be Lucroy. That’s the last name of All-Star catcher Jonathan, who currently is calling games for the Athletics. Together with Oakland at the middle of a rebuild and holding the rest of the teams at the American League West, front office would probably be happy to deal Lucroy to get a high prospect of the Twins. Since he’s signed for only 2018, Minnesota would be simply renting Lucroy for this season. Giving a prospect up for a leasing player might appear short sighted, that’s before you take into account the job of the Twins this past year. Everybody else in their division besides Cleveland is now in a rebuilding mode, giving Minnesota a lot of likely victories and a good chance to replicate as one of the Wild Cards if they cannot over come the Indians.
