While this may seem like another year of the Twins sitting on their hands (and fresh material for Pohlad bot), Wolfson reports that teams were asking for top Minnesota prospects in return.
It's an emotional time right this second for many fans, so I get the reaction. Ask was Royce, Alex, or Trevor for just about anyone with control beyond this year. HOU, CWS, NYY, TB all quiet too. #MNTwins, even if the 7 seed, can make a run with a healthy squad. Buckle up! https://t.co/ZDyxAzCOLa— Darren Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) August 31, 2020
But even with no end-of-the-month deals, Minnesota will be receiving reinforcements for the final run of the regular season, among them Josh Donaldson returning from the IL and Michael Pineda coming off suspension. The Twins also keep their highest-ranked prospects, maintaining an open championship window beyond 2020.
The wildness of this weekend failed to come to pass, but there are weeks left of wildness to come.
