Report: Twins Were Offering Slowey, One Additional Prospect

While Cliff Lee will not be a Minnesota Twin, it’s still interesting to hear how aggressive the team was in trying to acquire him. According to Tom Pelissero of, the Twins were offering Kevin Slowey and one additional prospect not named Aaron Hicks.

Word is the Twins were willing to deal Slowey and one of two prospects: catcher Wilson Ramos or outfielder Ben Revere. Talks broke down when, contrary to reports, the Twins refused to package Ramos with top outfield prospect Aaron Hicks.

It seems that if the Twins, as FanHouse reported they did, had offered Aaron Hicks too, they may have landed the lefty that is now making his home in Texas. Would that have been too much?
