One name that popped up perfectly matches the criteria of experience and also a short-term stay, and he’s unsigned after filing for free agency last November. Although Carlos Ruiz led the Philadelphia Phillies into two pennants as well as a World Series Championship, at thirty nine years of age he’d be viewed early for the rugged requirements of an everyday catcher. That brings us back into the prior Twins catcher with the French name, Matthew Lecroy. He has been off of this field for over a decade and currently is employed as a coach from the Minor!eagues, so he obviously is not going to be the replacement for Castro. No, the next Minnesota catcher won’t be Lecroy, but it must be Lucroy. That is the previous name of all star catcher Jonathan, who currently is calling games for the Athletics. With Oakland at the centre of a rebuild and holding the remaining teams at the American League West, the front office would probably be willing to deal Lucroy to get a top ten prospect of their Twins. Since he’s signed for only 2018, Minnesota would be simply renting Lucroy for this particular season. Giving up a prospect for a rental player may possibly appear shortsighted, that’s before you consider the place of the Twins this past year. Everybody within their branch moreover Cleveland is currently in a rebuilding mode, giving Minnesota plenty of likely successes and also a good opportunity to replicate among those wildcards if they cannot over come the Indians.
