Twins Trade Activity and Rumors: 7/27

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.


Ken Rosenthal indicates that every contender has expressed interest for Ryan Pressly (7/27)

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