Twins Trade Activity and Rumors: 7/22

Since we are getting close to the deadline, I am keeping track with the various Twins trade rumors and activity to date.  I will add to this on a daily basis, when news appear.   Hypothetical trades and "good fits" are not in the list, only reports of actual interest by a particular team for a particular player.  Another thing not listed will be negations by Twins' officials that they are not shopping anyone.


The Red Sox, Phillies, and Braves have been scouting the Twins' series at Royals, presumably for players in both teams (7/20)

The Brewers are interested in Brian Dozier per Ken Rosenthal.  and "multiple reports" (7/19)


The Twins optioned RHP Allan Busenitz to AAA Rochester, and recalled LHP Adalberto Mejia (7/22)

Twins LHP Lewis Thorpe has signed with the Brisbane Bandits of the Australian Baseball League for this off-season (7/22)

The Twins have announced that Ervin Santana will start the coming Wednesday.  A spot on both the 40-man and 25-man is needed. (7/22)

The Twins have activated Logan Morrison and optioned Willians Astrudillo to AAA Rochester (7/21)

The Twins have acquired OF Jeremy Hazelbaker from the Rays for cash and assigned him to AAA Rochester. (7/19)

Not a trade, but Twins' relievers Ryan Pressly and Trevor Hildenberger were engaged over the All-Star break  (7/19)
