It feels like it's been a few years since teams were so active at the trade deadline. Maybe that's because Twins baseball was always boring by this point of the season.
Pat Dean pitches well in a losing effort. Aaron Slegers has another good game in a Miracle split. Alex Perez has a good day in an E-Twins split. Junior Amarante does well in a DSL Twins loss.
