The Minnesota Twins might be continuing their active off-season as they may be open to trading outfielder Ben Revere, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FoxSports.com.

Revere hit .294 with 32 RBIs, 70 runs and 40 stolen bases for the Twins in 2012. In his three-year career, Revere is hitting .278 with 127 hits and 74 stolen bases in 254 games for Minnesota.

Morosi suggests that the Twins would need to get back a center fielder in the deal that may send Revere elsewhere.

Revere's 40 stolen bases tied him with Jose Reyes for fifth in the league last season, just nine behind league-leader Mike Trout.

The Minnesota Twins also traded outfielder Denard Span to the Washington Nationals in exchange for right-handed pitcher on Alex Meyer on Nov. 29.

Minnesota is reportedly searching free agency and trade options to acquire starting pitching this off-season.

The Twins finished fifth in the AL Central with a 66-96 record.
