One 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. Even though Carlos Ruiz directed the Philadelphia Phillies into two pennants as well as a World Series Championship, in thirty nine years of age he’d be considered ancient for the rugged requirements of an everyday catcher. This brings us straight back to the former Twins catcher with the French name, Matthew Lecroy. He has been o off of this field for over a decade and now is employed as a coach from the Minor!eagues, therefore he obviously isn’t going to function as replacement Castro. No, the next Minnesota catcher will not be Lecroy, however it should be Lucroy. That’s the previous name of all star catcher Jonathan, who now is calling games for the Athletics. Together with Oakland at the exact middle of a rebuild and holding up the remaining teams at the American League West, the front office will probably be eager to deal Lucroy to get a top possibility of their Twins. Since he’s signed for only 2018, Minnesota would be simply renting Lucroy for this particular season. Giving a prospect up for a leasing player may seem short sighted, that is until you take into account the place of the Twins this year. Everybody else in their division besides Cleveland is currently in a rebuilding mode, giving Minnesota plenty of likely successes and also a fantastic opportunity to repeat among those Wild Cards if they cannot overcome the Indians.
