1 name that popped up certainly fits the criteria of experience and a short-term stay, and he’s unsigned after filing for free agency last November. Even though Carlos Ruiz led the Philadelphia Phillies into two pennants as well as a World Series Championship, in thirty nine years of age he would be looked at ancient for the rugged requirements of an every day catcher. That brings us straight back into the former Twins catcher with the French name, Matthew Lecroy. He’s been off of the field for over 10 years and now is employed as a coach from the Minor!eagues, so he obviously is not going to function as replacement for Castro. No, the next Minnesota catcher will not be Lecroy, but it must be Lucroy. That’s the previous name of allstar catcher Jonathan, that now is calling games for the Athletics. With Oakland at the middle of a reconstruct and holding the rest of the teams in the American League West, the front office would probably be happy to deal Lucroy for a top ten potential of the Twins. Since he’s signed for only 2018, Minnesota wouldbe leasing Lucroy for this particular season. Giving a prospect up for a rental player may seem shortsighted, that is before you think about the job of the Twins this past year. Every one inside their branch moreover Cleveland is in a rebuilding mode, giving Minnesota plenty of likely successes and also a good chance to repeat as one of those wildcards if they can’t over come the Indians.
