1 name that popped up certainly fits the criteria of experience and also a short term stay, and he remains unsigned after filing for free agency last November. Although Carlos Ruiz headed the Philadelphia Phillies into two pennants along with a World Series Championship, at thirty nine years old he’d be considered early for the rugged demands of an everyday catcher. That brings us straight back to the former Twins catcher with the French name, Matthew Lecroy. He has been o off of this field for over 10 years and now is employed as a trainer in the Minor!eagues, so he obviously is not going to function as replacement Castro. No, the next Minnesota catcher will not be Lecroy, however it must be Lucroy. That is the last name of allstar catcher Jonathan, who now is calling games for the Athletics. Together with Oakland at the exact middle of a rebuild and holding the rest of the teams at the American League West, the front office will probably be eager to deal Lucroy for a top prospect of their Twins. Since he is signed for just 2018, Minnesota would be leasing Lucroy for this season. Giving a prospect up for a leasing player may possibly seem shortsighted, that’s until you take into account the job of the Twins this past year. Everyone in their branch besides Cleveland is currently in a rebuilding mode, giving Minnesota alot of likely successes and also a good opportunity to replicate as one of the Wild Cards when they cannot over come the Indians.
