    I think this makes a lot of sense… if the Twins didn’t have a glut of corner OFs. It seems like a better fit involves Puk/Jefferies and Twins eating $. Thoughts?

      Deichmann & Moreland were pulled from their games and A’s can use a solid veteran bat so I threw this out there with Moreland.

      I did versions with Puk but doubt the A’s will do both Puk & Jefferies without the Twins expanding the return to the A’s also.

        Moreland is (probably) on the COVID list. Details are vague but the A’s were able to add Jacob Wilson to the 40 Man without making a corresponding 60-Day or DFA transaction.

          Hello Grover

          I saw that both players were pulled from their Saturday games as the games were starting, …without explanation. Mgr. Bob Melvin didn’t want to “embarrass” anyone by commenting when asked about Moreland.

          Strange, unusual scenario & series of events.

          Given my imagination concerning the delay & additional days that have elapsed. it was easy to consider contract complications became an issue, …or a player has been given his choice of teams, …or a player is looking to extend his contract as a trade condition, …or the trade expanded to include additional players and scouts are involved at games, evaluating the players under consideration.

          I considered Jacob Wilson as Pinder’s replacement. Bob Melvin say not to expect Pinder back anytime soon and both have had success as Utility players. Never assume! I did, I assumed that exchange went smoothly.

            I’m not sure what’s going on with Deichmann. Wilson is replacing Pinder on the 26 man roster, not sure what happens once Moreland returns.

            Deichmann returned to the Las Vegas line-up tonight.
