Could Livan Hernandez Become Available?

Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press doesn't exactly say that the Twins are willing to trade Livan Hernandez.  Here's what he wrote:

It's too early, with the Twins still in contention. But starter Livan Hernandez's trade value probably won't be higher than it is now, and it will be interesting to see whether the right-hander, 33, is dealt for some power by the All-Star Game in July.

Hernandez has interesting numbers.  He has the second-lowest strikeout rate in baseball, coupled with the fifth-worst hit rate.  To counter that, Hernandez has the 10th-best walk rate.  Walter's suggestion that Hernandez is at peak value seems accurate.

Could Hernandez bring back a decent power bat?  Buster Olney names the Braves and Astros as two teams that might be looking for a pitcher like Livan.  The Twins are only two games out, however.
