Adding big name players puts teams on the mainstream radar. Depth is very underrated. Dipoto has done an excellent job of building depth. Trust me. It makes a big difference over a 162-game season.

Biggest name you see settling for a minors deal? Still talent out there it seems

Not a lot of 1B/DH jobs left. I'm guessing at least one of Adam Lind, Logan Morrison and Ryan Howard will have to settle for a MiLB deal.

Does greg allen push for indians cf job? Naquin had a hard time hitting fastballs last half of year and especially in the playoffs.

I think Bradley Zimmer is next in line. Allen only has 37 AA games under his belt. Needs another full season in the upper minors, in my opinion.

How do you pick questions? How often do you scroll back?
Jason Martinez

Still getting the hang of this. Only started it 2 months ago. I just recently figured out that there are multiple pages of questions so I was never getting very far ahead for recent questions. So I'm trying to go back and forth from most recent to earliest questions. Everyone is always welcome to send questions to @mlbdepthcharts if I don't get to it here.

Who will close for Twins this year?
Jason Martinez

Good question. I think it's Perkins' job when he's ready. Since I don't think that's going to be in April, or possibly even May, I think that has yet to be determined. Not sure Brandon Kintzler will get the job again after his poor finish. There are still a few free agents available who would love a chance to close. Fernando Salas, Sergio Romo, Joe Smith. Or how about Jonathan Papelbon?

OK, gotta run. Hoping for 1 big trade and at least 2 more big free agents off the board by the next chat. Same day and time next week.
