According to a tweet from AOL’s Jeff Fletcher, the Minnesota Twins have offered former first round pick Aaron Hicks along with their top catching prospect for the Mariners’ Cliff Lee.
MLB source hears #twins have offered OF Aaron Hicks (1st rnd, 08, 900 minor lg OPS) and top C prospect Wilson Ramos for C.Lee
Star Tribune beat writer La Velle E. Neal III says that nothing is imminent, but the two sides continue to talk. He also mentions that he believes the Twins are attempting to get Lee plus one other player in a deal.
Nothing close on Lee. Twins source tells me. Still guessing that talks are fluid.
I do believe that any deal would be Lee plus one.
The rumors are starting to pick up, and with the deadline less than a month away, they’ll all be put to rest one way or another in a matter of weeks.
