Twins Rumors: The next chapter could be a Trevor Story deal

Recent Minnesota Twins rumors suggest the team could have their eye on free agent shortstop Trevor Story.

The Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees pulled off a blockbuster Sunday night with Josh Donaldson and newly acquired shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa heading to the Bronx in exchange for Gary Sanchez and Gio Urshela. It would appear the Twins are hoping to compete in 2022. The latest Twins rumors suggest they could have at least one more chapter in their offseason.

Having let Andrelton Simmons walk and then trading away Kiner-Falefa shortly after acquiring him from the Texas Rangers in a trade, Twins rumors say they could be pivoting toward a deal for Story.

One of the big free agent shortstops on the market this offseason, it would be a power-play move by a team I think many believed were going to settle for far less.

Twins rumors: Trevor Story addition proves the team means business in 2022

The American League Central can be a funny division. This year’s title is up for grabs. The Cleveland Guardians look like they will hope everything goes their way and better in order to have a chance. The Detroit Tigers made a stride forward with the additions of Javier Baez and Eduardo Rodriguez but haven’t done much else to speed along their rebuild.

Meanwhile, the Chicago White Sox look built to make a playoff run while the Kansas City Royals will take another season off. The Twins, a team that rollercoasters between overachieving and underachieving, are making moves to hit their goals.

Minnesota may need to wait until Carlos Correa signs before they can snag Story. With the Yankees now seemingly out of the picture on both free agent shortstops, the Twins have one less team competing for him.

Story’s market is an interesting one. He didn’t have an excellent final season with the Colorado Rockies. Nonetheless, he’s a well-above-average hitter for the position and a good fielder, too. The Twins could get the best of both worlds by adding him to the club.

The idea of Twins rumors linking them to Story is a late surprise for fans in Minnesota. You don’t make the moves they did and stop there. There’s one more tale to tell. It’s about Trevor Story.
