Minnesota Twins Free Agent Profile: Could Zack Wheeler be the ace the Twins need?

You could say that things are beginning to get serious with the Minnesota Twins and Zack Wheeler. As the hot stove begins to warm up and the annual winter meetings just a couple of months away, the Twins have already begun talking to the right-hander’s representatives back at the MLB general managers’ meetings and may have continued their talks through this week’s owner’s meetings.

The Twins’ interest in Wheeler is no surprise with the team searching for “impact pitching,” but outside of Gerrit Cole and Stephen Strasburg, Wheeler could be considered the top prize in the next tier of free-agent starting pitchers and for good reason.
