Players Twins Could Sell At The Deadline

The Twins could become sellers at the trade deadline this season if they can’t get things turned around soon.  The Twins are looking up at 4 teams in the AL Central and trail division leading Cleveland by 12 1/2 games.  Minnesota could come back but if they don’t they could try and replenish their farm system by dealing some players.  The top player the Twins could deal is starting pitchers Carl Pavano and Francisco Liriano.  Pavano was signed to an affordable 2-year contract and is considered an innings eater.  Liriano could still command a top prospect because of his youth and potential.  The Twins could also deal closers Matt Capps and/or Joe Nathan.  Both players become free agents after the season.  Capps is a known commodity while Nathan is still an injury risk.  If the Twins feel they can’t or won’t bring back Jason Kubel and/or Michael Cuddyer both of those players could be dealt too.  Pavano and Capps are the two most likely players to be dealt in my opinion.  The Twins could use a shortstop or catcher prospect in return.
