Twins Trade Activity and Rumors: 7/30

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.
