Another front-line starter that the Twins had expressed interest in has now gone by the boards.â†µ
The Arizona Diamondbacks announced that they have traded Dan Haren (7-8, 4.60 ERA) to the Los Angeles Angeles of Anaheim. In exchange, the Diamondbacks have received pitcher Joe Saunders (6-10, 4.62), two minor league prospects (LHP Patrick Corbin and RHP Rafael Rodriguez) and a player to be named later.â†µ
The Twins, from all accounts, are still in the Roy Oswalt sweepstakes. The trading deadline hits on Saturday at 3 PM Central time, so if the Twins want to get something done, they’ll need to get it done soon.
