The Minnesota Twins are "open" to trading veteran Kendrys Morales, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

The Twins signed Morales in June to be their DH after he declined a qualifying offer from Seattle in the offseason. Any team that would have signed him prior to the MLB draft would have lost a draft pick.

Morales is batting .237 with one home run, 18 RBIs and an OPS of .599. The 31-year-old was on a 12-game hitting streak entering Wednesday.

Rosenthal also reported that the Twins could move leftfielder Josh Willingham, pitcher Kevin Correia and catcher Kurt Suzuki as well.
