The Minnesota Twins are not wasting any time in making waves in the offseason following the end of the MLB lockout ended. After shocking the baseball world by sending Josh Donaldson along with Isiah Kiner-Falefa to the New York Yankees for Gary Sanchez and Gio Urshela, the Twins could be making headlines again soon, as they are rumored to be eyeing free-agent shortstop Trevor Story.

Having added some breathing room to their payroll after trading Donaldson, the Twins might be feeling emboldened in giving Story a chase. Kiner-Falefa looked like to be the shortstop this year for the Twins, but apparently, Minnesota had other plans for him. With an opening on the shortstop slot and some financial legroom to operate with, the Twins could be preparing a huge deal for Story, whose power could more than replace what they lost in the Donaldson trade.

Story hit .251/.329/.471 with 24 home runs in 142 games with the Rockies in 2021. He struggled in the early goings of the 2021 campaign but found his groove in the second half. So far in his career, the 29-year-old Story is slashing .272/.340/.523 while also having hit a total of 158 homers.
