Brian Dozier makes most of power by pulling | MLB.com

Wherever Dozier ends up, he’s not going to be the strongest player in the lineup. But he may just be the hitter who has learned how to maximise the power he does have more efficiently than most others. It’s good to hit the ball in the air. It’s a lot better to find the parts of the park that are much more conducive to the distance you have. That’s how Dozier become a slugger—and that’s why he’s so valuable.

Twins must be “really inspired” to trade Brian Dozier

Kinsler has been the superior player but he’s six years older. Whether that age difference will show up in his play over the next two seasons is questionable.

While Dozier, 28, is signed for two more seasons at a combined $15 million, the 34-year-old Kinsler could be controlled through 2018 for just $6 million more if his option is exercised. Kinsler, a four-time all-star with superior defensive metrics to Dozier’s, can block trades to 10 teams, including the Dodgers, owners of perhaps the game’s deepest farm system but also reportedly in some danger of violating the sport’s debt regulations.

“I think we have to evaluate the players who are here and assess whether or not they’re going to be here when we’re vying for the Central title,” Levine said. “If the answer is yes, we’re going to do whatever we can to retain those players and build around them. If the (answer) is maybe, then we’re open-minded. If the (answer) is likely not, then I think what we owe the franchise and what we owe you guys is to do the best we can to accelerate this process of getting back to greatness by using those assets to improve the team.”
