The Minnesota Twins held on to most of their veteran players through the July 31 non-waive trade deadline, but La Velle E. Neal III of the Star Tribune reports several players, namely Carl Pavano and Matt Capps, could still be on the move this month:

The Twins' search for more talent, namely pitchers, continues this month. Next up is the Aug. 31 deadline for players who have cleared waivers. Every player won't get through waivers without being claimed, but the chances for deals remain.

The Twins could have a couple more chips to play by then, as righthanders Carl Pavano and Matt Capps are working their way back from shoulder problems and could be back on the mound by then. Both could be attractive stretch-drive options for contenders.

Neal also notes that rumor of outfielder Denard Span vetoing a trade to the Cincinnati Reds is not true. Span does not have a no-trade clause in his current contract and he’s several years away from becoming a 10-and-5 player which would enable him to block trades.

Should the Twins continue selling off veterans this month?
