Let’s start off by being brutally honest with ourselves: no Twins’ pitcher will be traded this year.
Think about it.
Either the pitcher is too good and too vital to the organization to trade, take Glen Perkins for example, or the pitcher just isn’t good enough to trade and would get nothing in return, like Vance Worley.
So let’s take every pitcher out of the equation right off the bat. If anyone leaves, chances are good it will be through an outright release.
Let’s just move right on to the position players who have a legitimate shot at moving around the deadline this year.
