MLB Rumors: Rays close to dealing Young for Garza, Where will Johan Santana end up?
Rays and Twins Close to a deal
The Minnesota Twins and the Tampa Bay Rays are close to making a six player deal that would include Delmon Young and Matt Garza.
This would be a great deal for both sides because the Twins recently lost Outfielder Torii Hunter to the Angels and need to replace his hitting in the outfiend. The Rays, who have a surplus of outfielders, are in bad need of pitching. Both of these players are great prospects and if Delmon Young can keep his temper under control he has all the tools to be a great player.
Young, 22, hit .288 with 13 home runs and 93 RBIs in his first full major league season. Garza, 24, was 5-7 with a 3.69 ERA in 15 starts for the Twins in 2007.
Delmon Young is probably best known for throwing his bat at an umpire in his minor league days. Check it out.
In his defense, the ball was way outside… 😕
Want Johan Santana? Get in line
he list of suitors for Johan Santana is just getting bigger and bigger. Right now that list includes the Yankees, the Red Sox, The Mets, and the Angels. In order to get Santana your going to have to give up a lot though. So who looks like they have the best shot right now?
The Red Sox, Angels, and Mets all have a lot of money to off Santana for a potential long term contract after his contract expires this year but the team that has the best shot right now is the Yankees. The New York Yankees have a lot of young talent that they can potentially deal to Minnesota and as always, they have the most money to offer any superstar player.
The Twins haven’t even confirmed that they will be trading Santana but if they do, expect to see him in Pinstripes next year.
