Check back for updates all day because the MLB trade deadline strikes at 3 p.m. CT and the Twins could be active. 

Update 11:55 a.m. – MLB reporter Jon Morosi says the Twins and Nationals are discussing a trade involving closer Brandon Kintzler. 

Update 10:55 a.m. –'s Mark Feinsand reports that it's becoming more and more likely the Twins will trade closer Brandon Kintzler. 

On Sunday, the Twins traded Jaime Garcia to the Yankees for a pair of pitching prospects. That could be the first of many moves for the Twins, who are now expected to sell assets rather than buy because they've fallen out of the playoff picture with 10 losses in 15 games since the All-Star break. 

Names to watch: Brian Dozier, Ervin Santana, Brandon Kintzler and Bartolo Colon are the big names the Twins could deal. 

Twins GM Thad Levine told MLB XM Sirius radio on Sunday that Kintzler is the guy he's getting the most calls about. 

We're going to be ready to roll in the event that the right deal crosses our plate," Levine said. 

Stay tuned for updates.
