Low Profile MI Trade

Low Profile MI Trade

Rate this Entry
With the Winter Meetings looming and the Twins having already made some impressive moves, one player who intrigues me is Danny Espinosa of the Nats. A 2b/ss who has kinda fell out of favor in the Nats organization. The Twins could use some help in the MI and Espinosa might be had for a minimal price. He strikes out to much and has a low BA. But he has 4 years of team control, is a switch-hitter, has really good pop, and a pretty good defensive player at both 2b/ss. He was a highly touted prospect and maybe hasn't fulfilled his potential yet. With the Nats trading Lombardozzi it maybe changes how they feel about Espinosa. But Espinosa is the type of player the Twins should look at to help their MI and can maybe be had for a very resonable price. Plus four years of team control. A very reasonable gamble on a player who might break-out and be a useful player. He hasn't played much ss in the majors because of Desmond, but he would be good competition for Florimon at ss and would give us some depth there.

    Yeah, I've wondered about Espinosa before. I like the idea of sniffing around at him for sure. Any idea why he hasn't taken off?

    BTW, this sort of short post, where you ask a question and look for feedback, might generate a lot of discussion in the forum if you started it as a thread instead of a blog. Shoot me a message if you have trouble doing that.
