Twins are in talks as MLB's trade deadline approaches

Sixty-one losses and out of the postseason playoff picture, the Minnesota Twins are right in the middle of swirling Major League trade rumors.

Baseball's trade deadline is six days away, and Twins pitchers are reportedly getting much of the attention. Reports out of Boston have Miami inquiring about Twins starters Ricky Nolasco and Tommy Milone.

"The Marlins were at Fenway this weekend watching Nolasco and Tommy Milone, as well as the Red Sox’ Eduardo Rodriguez, though it would appear that Rodriguez is unavailable," Boston Globe writer Nick Cafardo observed.

Twins beat writer Mike Berardino also confirms the interest in Nolasco and adds Ervin Santana in the trade speculation.

But the Twins don't appear to be too willing to part with Santana. Assistant G.M. Rob Antony told reporters Tuesday afternoon that while no one is untouchable, he's a little hesitant to deal Santana.

Antony added that the team will make any deal that they believe is in their best interest long term, but that he's mostly looking for pitching help.

However you see it, ESPN reports that the Twins are in the middle of the trade winds. Stay tuned for more.
