In Search For An Outfielder – Minnesota Twins

So far, we have identified the following outfielders as possible targets for the Mets:

                Atlanta – Reed Johnson
                Arizona – A.J. Pollock
Baltimore – Nolan Reimold
                Boston – Jerry Sands
                Chicago Cubs – Brett Jackson
Chicago White Sox - Dayan Viciedo
Cincinnati – Chris Heisey
                Cleveland – Thomas Neal -
                Colorado – Dexter Fowler
Detroit – none
Kansas City – none
Los Angeles Angels – Mark Trumbo
Los Angeles Dodgers – Alex Castellanos
Miami Marlins – Gorkys Hernandez
Milwaukee Brewers – Khris Davis
Pittsburgh – Jose Tabata

We now move on to the Minnesota Twins, who have  only five (5) outfielders on their current 40-man roster:

                Oswaldo Arcia lefty – pre-ARB -  AA: .328
                Joe Benson – righty –  pre-ARB -   AAA:  .179, AA: .184
                Aaron Hicks – switch –  pre-ARB – AA: 472-AB, 13/61
                Darin Mastroianni – righty –  pre-ARB – MLB, 163-AB, .252
        Josh Willingham – righty - $7mil per year through 2014 – MLB, 519-AB, .260, 35/110

This is a young team dominated by one contract, C Joe Mauer.

Both Ben Revere (Phillies) and Denard Span (Nats) are gone. On the surface, the 2013 Twins outfield seem to be suffering the same fate as the Mets. Willingham will anchor at LF, but the ret is up for grabs between the four remaining members of the 40-man.

Mets target:  Don’t be surprised if the Twins aren’t out there bidding against the Mets right now for what’s left in the outfield market - None
