The Minnesota Twins were part of a recent multiplayer trade with the New York Yankees and it appears they are not yet done.

According to Dan Hayes of The Athletic who cited sources, the Twins are now eyeing Trevor Story, one of the top names in the MLB market right now.

The Twins were able to maneuver their payroll after trading Josh Donaldson and Isiah Kiner-Falefa to the Yankees. In exchange, Minnesota acquired the services of Gary Sanchez and Gio Urshela.

Kiner-Falefa appeared to be the one to take on the shortstop role but it seems the Twins have other things in mind. The MLB trade means there is a void to be filled at shortstop and chasing Story is plausible – considering the fact they have financial legroom to operate.

In 2021, Story hit .251/.329/.471 with 24 home runs in 142 games with the Rockies. This was despite him struggling in the early goings last season.

Story 29-year-old was able to find his groove in the second half. In his career, Story is slashing .272/.340/.523 while also having hit a total of 158 homers.

But if the Twins are bent on getting the two-time All-Star, they will need to act fast. Minnesota is not the only team interested in Story.

Multiple teams also have their eye on the two-time Silver Slugger awardee per a report by Mike Rodriguez of Univision.

In his report on Sunday, he mentioned teams such as the Houston Astros, St. Louis Cardinals, Cleveland Guardians and New York Yankees as other teams also reaching out to Trevor Story.

Of the teams that are interested in Story, the Astros loom as a curious landing spot. If they are successful, the 29-year-old would take the place of Carlos Correa who is now a free agent. Correa was the starter for the Houston Astros since 2015.

Story is one of the last big dominoes to fall in free agency, and he could be a game-changer for whichever team signs him.
