Twins most recent first round pick:

https://twitter.com/The_BPCsj/status/1477683820967120900?t=um-fcfP1k7Gr-xh60giX9Q&s=19

Between his slider, fastball, and change-up, he has almost 3 feet of horizontal break on his pitches 😳😳😳

Twins have traded Mitch Garver to the Rangers for SS Isiah Kiner-Falefa and RHP Ronny Henriquez.

Kiner-Falefa will be the starting SS. Not sure of details on the pitcher. I get the sense he was a throw in.

Ronny Henriquez is the pitcher. 21 year old pitcher, threw 93 innings in minors between A and AA last season and struck out 105 hitters.

In his minot league career he has a 3.85 ERA with 233 IP and 283 Ks.

Here is quote I found on the pitcher acquired in the deal.

Henriquez was added to the Rangers' 40-man roster earlier this offseason to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft and will slot in as one of the more intriguing pitching prospects in the Twins' system. The 21-year-old righty recorded a solid 4.71 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 105/25 K/BB ratio across 93 2/3 innings between High-A Hickory and Double-A Frisco last year.

Interesting move. Petty was last year's first round pick.

Gray has two years left of team control and has been a very reliable starter throughout his career.

Twins great Isaiah Kiner-Falefa and Josh Donaldson are apparently about to be traded to the Yankees.

Edit: For Gary Sanchez and Gio Urshela, it sounds like.

Sounds like they may be moving Sanchez shortly too.

I'm having trouble following all of this now. Who's going to play SS now and does this mean they think Miranda is ready for the big club? Are they thinking about possibly trying to free up Donaldson's salary for some big pitching splash somehow?

Trevor Story is the rumor. Guess we see if it happens.

Now sources are saying they will keep Sanchez.

Trevor Story would be an amazing signing.

I wonder if Donaldson and Cole will be roommates on Yankee road trips?

Oh there’s definitely a ceiling they are maneuvering to create space under, they just won’t admit it.

Or they are cutting some money to actually make a big splash on a signing?

Ok, I could barely type that with a straight face.

Unexpected (all the steam was around Trevor Story) but huuuuuge get. He was probably the top free agent in this class.

The first two picks in the 2012 draft are now teammates.

Correa's contract gives him the 4th highest AAV in MLB. Behind only Scherzer (Mets), Cole (Yankees), and Trout (LA Angels).

Basically this is 3 one year deals then.

Yeah, I love that the Twins are spending money but I think I would have rather had them just keep Kiner-Falefa and spend the Correa money on pitching.

Yeah…super good deal for the Twins. Why did CC agree to this? Couldn’t he have easily gotten something like 5 year 150 million?

Veteran reliever Joe Smith signs. Getting up there in age, but still pretty effective. Should munch up to 50 innings.

I tweeted earlier that this seems like someone putting racing slicks on a car with a 4 cylinder engine.

It doesn’t make sense.

I do think they are still trying to make a move for another starting pitcher.

Player option? To me that's basically a one year deal then knowing the Twins.

But hey at least they're doing something

Unless Correia gets hurt, it's really only a one year deal.

He's the 4th highest AAV contract in MLB this season and will continue to be paid 35 million+ for each of the next two years if he wants it. If he plays out the duration, great. He'll still only be 30 with plenty of years left to cash in on a big contract. The luxury tax threshold should go up each year based on the new CBA meaning a new contract in 2-3 years could theoretically pay more (unless the owners continue to intentionally suppress salaries).

If he leaves early, whatever. The Twins top two offensive prospects are both shortstops. He fills a huge need for this team and makes this lineup ridiculously strong offensively and defensively.

There are still a lot of rumors swirling that the Twins may make a deal with Oakland for Manaea or Montas (or both?) Which would make the rotation very interesting.

He switched agents this year, so his old agency was entitled to the commission on this contract, but his new agent gets the commission on his next contract.

Sounds like one and done if that’s the case.
