The Minnesota Twins could trade All-Star utility man Luis Arraez this offseason to acquire a top-tier pitcher, sources told Dan Hayes of The Athletic.

Minnesota's front office has discussed trading the reigning American League batting champion to improve the long-term stability of the team's starting rotation, according to Hayes.

Starters Sonny Gray, Kenta Maeda, and Tyler Mahle can all hit free agency after the 2023 campaign.

Arraez slashed .316./375/.420 with eight homers and 49 RBIs over 144 games during his age-25 campaign in 2022.
