MLB Rumors: Twins Eyeing 5 Outfielders As Trade Deadline Approaches

As the trade deadline approaches, the Minnesota Twins are actively seeking to bolster their outfield roster to enhance their chances for success in the second half of the season.

With a particular focus on addressing their struggles against left-handed pitching, they have their eyes set on five potential candidates: Lane Thomas, Randal Grichuk, Tommy Pham, Mark Canha, and Adam Duvall.

So far this season, Lane Thomas holds an impressive .293/.339/.488 triple-slash line, with 16 home runs, 54 RBIs, 12 stolen bases, and 68 runs scored across 99 games.

Randal Grichuk also holds an impressive .313/.370/.487 triple-slash line, with six home runs, 25 RBIs, two stolen bases, and 38 runs scored over 60 games with the Colorado Rockies this season.

Tommy Pham is having a nice season, with a .271/.355/.472 triple-slash line, nine home runs, 35 RBIs, 11 stolen bases, and 28 runs scored over 75 games with the New York Mets.

Mark Canha isn't quite replicating the numbers he put up last season, holding a .235/.333/.374 triple-slash line, with six home runs, 28 RBIs, seven stolen bases, and 27 runs scored over 84 games with the Mets this season.

Adam Duvall was the hottest hitter in baseball at the beginning of this season, however, an injury sidelined him for a couple of months.

That being said, he is starting to heat up again, holding a .259/.329/.511 triple-slash line, with seven home runs, 27 RBIs, four stolen bases, and 22 runs scored over 40 games played with the Boston Red Sox.

The Twins are keenly interested in acquiring a right-handed hitting outfielder to provide much-needed support and balance to their lineup.
