One name that popped up perfectly matches the criteria of experience and a short term stay, and he remains unsigned after filing for free agency last November. Even though Carlos Ruiz headed the Philadelphia Phillies to two pennants together with a World Series Championship, in thirty nine years of age he’d be looked at early for the rocky requirements of an everyday catcher. This brings us straight back to the former Twins catcher with the French name, Matthew Lecroy. He has been off of the field for more than 10 years and currently is employed as a coach in the Minor!eagues, therefore he obviously isn’t going to be the replacement for Castro. No, the next Minnesota catcher will not be Lecroy, however it should be Lucroy. That’s the previous name of allstar catcher Jonathan, who now is calling for games for the Athletics. With Oakland in the middle of a reconstruct and holding up the rest of the teams in the American League West, front office will probably be willing to deal Lucroy to get a top possibility of the Twins. Since he’s signed for only 2018, Minnesota wouldbe leasing Lucroy for this particular season. Giving a prospect up for a leasing player may seem short sighted, that’s until you think about the job of the Twins this year. Every one in their division besides Cleveland is in a rebuilding mode, giving Minnesota alot of likely successes and also a fantastic chance to replicate among the wildcards if they cannot over come the Indians.
