Throw in the towel: Minnesota Twins

The Twins are are much improved this year, but Minnesota is still a long shot to win the division crown.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Jaime García is a low-key addition but one that's a real upgrade to a back-end of a rotation that's been a problem for the team all season. If the Twins, a still-rebuilding team, are to make additions, it should be ones like this one. Prospect Huascar Ynoa was probably on the very bottom of the team's list of Top-25 prospects.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Twins picked up Jaime Garcia from the Braves in one of those deals that tells the fans you're trying to make the playoffs ... but you're not really going to give up anything of value as you try to make the playoffs. Garcia is a minor upgrade for the rotation, although we'll see how his game translates to the AL. He's been worth 1.1 WAR for the Braves, so projects to add maybe an extra win for the Twins if he pitches well. No harm in dealing a low-level pitching prospect and it makes everyone feel good.
