Minnesota Twins

Of all the teams on this list, the Twins may be the least likely. While the Twins do have a similar need for pitching, they do not match the financial or organizational clout of any of the teams mentioned above. With that being said, Fernandez is still a relatively cheap option for the remainder of his arbitration years, and the Twins could afford him for a short-term window of opportunity. Beyond that, while the Twins may not have the minor league depth of the other teams listed, they do have enough interesting pieces, such as Max Kepler, Jose Berrios and Byron Buxton, to get this kind of deal started. While both Berrios and Buxton may be asking too much, Kepler, with some other parts thrown in, could get the discussion moving forward.
