Sizing up the Santana market

  • Updated: November 26, 2007 - 9:53 PM

Staff writer Joe Christensen takes a closer look at what the Twins could get for Johan Santana from the likely suitors.

NEW YORK YANKEES

Dream trade: Twins get 2B Robinson Cano and RHP Joba Chamberlain.

Reality: Cano and Chamberlain are virtual untouchables.

More obtainable: CF Melky Cabrera and RHP Phil Hughes or RHP Ian Kennedy.

NEW YORK METS

Dream trade: Twins get SS Jose Reyes and OF Fernando Martinez.

Reality: Reyes and Martinez are untouchable, as is 3B David Wright.

More obtainable: OF Carlos Gomez or OF Lastings Milledge and RHP Kevin Mulvey.

BOSTON RED SOX

Dream trade: Twins get CF Jacoby Ellsbury and LHP Jon Lester or RHP Clay Buchholz.

Reality: The Red Sox don't need Santana as much as the other teams on this list.

More obtainable: CF Coco Crisp and Lester or Buchholz.

LOS ANGELES DODGERS

Dream trade: Twins get CF Matt Kemp, 3B Andy LaRoche and RHP Chad Billingsley.

Reality: The Dodgers are much more interested in upgrading their offense.

More obtainable: LaRoche and Billingsley or LHP Clayton Kershaw.

LOS ANGELES ANGELS

Dream trade: Twins get CF Gary Matthews Jr., 3B Brandon Wood and RHP Nick Adenhart.

Reality: The Angels seem more likely to trade for 3B Miguel Cabrera or SS Miguel Tejada.

More obtainable: Matthews and LHP Joe Saunders or RHP Ervin Santana.

Note: Chart above based on the Twins' track record; assume a Class A prospect would be thrown in as an extra piece to any of these five deals.
