4) Mets outfielder Mark Canha may be the complementary piece the Twins need

The Minnesota Twins need some upgrades and pieces in their offense. Although the organization will go in search of outside help, they are not looking at any blockbuster trade or relatively expensive parts.

The Twins' left field has been in rotation all season without finding a consistent offensive production piece. Similarly, the team is one of the worst in the league in terms of collective base percentage.

Mark Canha could immediately help the Minnesota team's offense without overpaying for this help. His ability to get on base, drive in runs, and play outfield and first base provides the flexibility needed for everyday play.

Since the Mets will assume Canha's contract, the Twins would be forced to pay for this benefit. The Mets would be requiring MLB talent or players who are close to contributing in the big leagues.

The Mets could look to Jordan Balazovic, who is the No. 18 prospect in the Twins organization and is currently in MLB, as a potential trade. If the New York team wants to get creative, they could add a relief arm in Adam Ottavino or even a middle type of prospect to the trade and capitalize on and get former top prospect, Austin Martin.
