Mientkiewicz told he is going to be traded.

Sounds like Mientkiewicz will be out of MN by the end of the week. The Pirates are supposedly interested in Mientkiewicz in a Kris Benson deal. However, the Angels are offering top prospect Kasey Kotchman meaning the Twins should lose out on this deal. Mientkiewicz could then be heading to Boston according to the article.

The good news here is a full-time gig for Twins uber prospect Justin Morneau. Since being called up July 17 Morneau is batting .299 with five homers and 13 RBI in 67 at-bats. If he keeps hitting the Twins should be neck and neck with the White Sox the rest of the season for the Central crown.
