Given that the Twins rank second from the bottom of the AL in home runs, they acquired a DH type with some pop: Phil Nevin.
Nevin's had his ups and downs this year between the Rangers and Cubs, but he is slugging .456 in 355 ABs. Twins' DHs have been a void this season so Nevin can only help. Minnesota currently trails the White Sox by a half game for the AL wild card.
Nevin's $10MM salary ranks second on his new club, though the Cubs are footing some of the bill in hopes of receiving a decent prospect.
