There are as always plenty of ways and reasons that Justin Morneau could be traded by the Minnesota Twins. Also there are plenty of rumors that are swirling around about teams that could be interested. It is also true according to an article on the official Twins site by MLB reporter Rhett Bollinger that the Twins could conceivably bring Morneau back for the 2014 season.
For the length of this season at least Morneau and his people have consistently said that he does not want to leave Minnesota. He wants to stay the Twins’ first baseman. There actually could be a perfect situation for that to happen. The Twins are not going to give Morneau a ton of money or a long extension for the same reason they cannot get a lot in return for him. Since his injuries slowed him a short while ago he hasn’t been the same.
Because he is playing better over about the past month, the Twins could see it beneficial to offer him a one year deal. According to Bollinger’s speculation it could be a one year deal with a ton of incentives and an option for another year. I don’t know what kind of options Morneau will have on the open market but if he wants to stay in Minnesota, if he really wants to stay, he very well could have a very incentive laden reason to stay and prove his worth once again.
