One way or another it looks like trade rumors swirling around Twins second baseman Brian Dozier might be coming to an end.

Multiple reports indicate that we could find out what new Twins bosses Derek Falvey and Thad Levine intend to do with their star second baseman.

The Twins asked for interested teams to propose their final and best trade offers for Dozier last week.

According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, there's agreement throughout the organization that it's not fair to Dozier nor is it beneficial to the team to allow the uncertainty to drag out much longer.

The main team featured in the trade talks has been the Dodgers, but there have been reports that other teams – including St. Louis and San Francisco – have also had some interest.

However, many national reports say the Twins and Dodgers have failed to agree on a package beyond 24-year-old right-hander Jose DeLeon.

Dozier is coming off a career year, hitting 42 homers and driving in 99 runs, while hitting a career-best .268, but the Twins lost 103 games last year. He's 29, with two years and $15 million remaining on his contract.

1500 ESPN's Derek Wetmore says he believes it's 50-50 on whether or not the Twins deal Dozier.

But either way, we should find out soon. We'll keep you updated so stay tuned.
