1 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. Even though Carlos Ruiz headed the Philadelphia Phillies to two pennants along with a World Series Championship, at thirty nine years old he would be considered early for the rugged requirements of an every day catcher. This brings us back into the former Twins catcher with the French name, Matthew Lecroy. He’s been o off of this field for more than 10 years and now is employed as a coach in the Minor!eagues, so he clearly isn’t going to function as replacement for Castro. No, the next Minnesota catcher will not be Lecroy, however it should be Lucroy. That’s the last name of allstar catcher Jonathan, that now is calling games for the Athletics. With Oakland in the exact middle of a rebuild and holding up the rest of the teams at the American League West, front office will probably be eager to deal Lucroy to get a top prospect of their Twins. Since he is signed for just 2018, Minnesota would be simply renting Lucroy for this particular season. Giving up a prospect for a leasing player may seem short sighted, that’s before you think about the place of the Twins this past year. Everyone within their division besides Cleveland is in a rebuilding mode, giving Minnesota alot of likely victories and a good opportunity to replicate among the wildcards if they can’t over come the Indians.
