1 name that popped up perfectly matches the criteria of knowledge and a short term stay, and he’s unsigned after filing for free agency last November. Although Carlos Ruiz directed the Philadelphia Phillies to two pennants along with a World Series Championship, at thirty nine years of age he would be considered ancient for the rugged requirements of an every day catcher. That brings us back into the former Twins catcher with the French name, Matthew Lecroy. He’s been off of the field for more than ten years and now is employed as a trainer in the Minor!eagues, so he obviously is not going to be the replacement Castro. No, the next Minnesota catcher won’t be Lecroy, however it must be Lucroy. That is the last name of allstar catcher Jonathan, who now is calling for games for the Athletics. With Oakland at the middle of a rebuild and holding up the rest of the teams at the American League West, front office will probably be ready to deal Lucroy for a top ten prospect of the Twins. Since he is signed for just 2018, Minnesota would be leasing Lucroy for this season. Giving up a prospect for a rental player may appear shortsighted, that is until you take into account the position of the Twins this past year. Every one within their division moreover Cleveland is currently in a rebuilding mode, giving Minnesota lots of likely successes and also a good chance to repeat as one of those wildcards when they cannot overcome the Indians.
