B.J. Upton of the Tampa Bay Rays has turned into a hot name on the trade market, and the Twins may be a long shot to acquire him.
Still, the Twins have gotten less out of their outfield this season than most people would think.
Jason Kubel was extremely productive early on, but is now coming off an injury that could cause an adjustment period.
Center field has been a fluid situation, with a mere prospect in Ben Revere replacing Denard Span as he sits out with a concussion.
Michael Cuddyer has been playing a number of positions and Delmon Young has been in and out of the lineup, producing far worse numbers than last year.
Revere has started to struggle, but still has value as a young talent.
If Upton were to head to the Twins, it would shock the world. Nonetheless, it would be a much needed upgrade in the outfield for Minnesota.
