MLB: Twins are also looking for shortstop, though not a big shot; here some options

The Minnesota Twins are another club looking for help at shortstop, but they don’t plan on spending much on the big names as Twins will be targeting a short term name as a bridge to prospects Royce Lewis or Austin Martin.

It’s not entirely out of the question for the Twins to go after a star (last winter they had an interest in Marcus Semien, for example), but players like Freddy Galvis, José Iglesias or the old friend, Andrelton Simmons, they might be a better fit:

As for trade possibilities, Didi Gregorius “was on the Twins’ radar last offseason” before signing a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Phillies.

However, Gregorius struggled in 2021, costing him a secure starting job in Philadelphia next year, and could have also given the Twins a hiatus over acquiring the veteran.

On Minnesota’s current roster, Jorge Polanco could return to shortstop as an interim option, although the Twins would prefer to keep Polanco at second base.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
