One name that popped up certainly fits the criteria of expertise and a short term stay, and he remains unsigned after filing for free agency last November. Even though Carlos Ruiz led the Philadelphia Phillies to two pennants together with a World Series Championship, at thirty nine years old he’d be considered early for the rugged requirements of an everyday catcher. That brings us straight back into the prior Twins catcher with the French name, Matthew Lecroy. He has been off of the field for over ten years and now is employed as a trainer in the Minor!eagues, therefore he obviously isn’t going to function as replacement for Castro. No, the next Minnesota catcher won’t be Lecroy, but it should be Lucroy. That is the last name of all star catcher Jonathan, that currently is calling games for the Athletics. With Oakland in the middle of a reconstruct and holding the rest of the teams at the American League West, front office will probably be willing to deal Lucroy for a high ten prospect of their Twins. Since he is signed for only 2018, Minnesota wouldbe leasing Lucroy for this particular season. Giving a prospect up for a rental player may possibly seem shortsighted, that’s until you consider the job of the Twins this year. Every one within their division besides Cleveland is in a rebuilding mode, giving Minnesota lots of likely victories and a good opportunity to replicate among those Wild Cards if they cannot overcome the Indians.
