Twins Trade Activity and Rumors: 7/25

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.


According to Jon Heyman, the Phillies are interested in Eduardo Escobar (7/25)

Per Jeff Passan, teams are planning on scouting Ervin Santana's upcoming first start of the season (7/23)

The Brewers are interested in Brian Dozier per Ken Rosenthal.  and "multiple reports" (7/19).  Also per Ken Rosenthal, a team, likely the Brewers made an offer for both Dozier and Eduardo Escobar (7/22)

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