The Twins and Red Sox are getting closer to finalizing a Johan Santana deal. Boston has sweetened its offer by adding a fifth player to the the offer — outfield prospect Ryan Kalish, a ninth-round draft pick in the 2006 out of Red Bank Catholic High School (Shrewsbury, N.J.).
Peter says the Sox added a 5th prospect to sweeten a deal. But nothings been said about which deal the Twins prefer. You’d have to assume it was the Lester/Crisp one because it was the 4-1 deal. But maybe the Ellsbury deal got creative and two more prospects were added.
