Yeah, a lot less activity than I thought there'd be.

Twins get a PTBNL. Awesome work!

It could be worse though. Royals...

Royals acquired OF Justin Maxwell from the Astros for RHP Kyle Smith.
Maxwell is batting just .241/.311/.387 through 40 games this season, but he owns an .824 career OPS against left-handed pitching. He figures to be used on the short side of a platoon in right field alongside David Lough.


The Royals OF is getting crowded with CF type players. Cain would be a better platoon match for Maxwell assuming the defense drop-off isnt major with either Maxwell or Lough playing center.

Just looking at the fielding stats on baseball reference it's safe to say Lough is a well below average center fielder. I imagine they'll let him play CF sometimes to get him in the lineup. But he'd hurt them there too much full time.
