For the second year in a row, SB Nation held mock Winter Meetings just prior to baseball's actual Winter Meetings. For a full read, you can see my reviews for Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4/Full recap, but I've outlined all of my moves here:
- Twins trade Josh Willingham and $5 million to Rays for Thomas Coyle, Vince Belnome, Jacob Faria, and Jose Alvarado.
- Twins trade Brian Dozier to Athletics for A.J. Griffin.
- Twins sign A.J. Pierzynski to two-year, $14 million dollar contract.
- Twins trade Ryan Pressly to White Sox for Conor Gillaspie.
- Twins sign Dan Haren to four-year, $48 million dollar contract.
- Twins sign Mark Ellis to two-year, $12 million dollar contract.
- Twins trade Ryan Doumit to Blue Jays for Melky Cabrera.
- Twins sign Jeff Baker to a one-year, $3 million dollar contract.
- Twins sign Ervin Santana to four-year, $40 million dollar contract.
- Twins sign Tommy Hanson to minor league contract.
- Twins sign Johan Santana to minor league contract.
- Twins sign Justin Morneau to minor league contract.
At the time....
Willingham to Rays
Dozier to A's
Minor league contracts
- At just 27 in 2014, Tommy Hanson was worth a gamble. He looks cooked.
- Johan Santana is always worth a look. What a sad second half of a career it's been for Johan.
- Justin Morneau is hitting .312/.345/.502. So one of them worked out.
