Colombian shortstop Gio Urshela has moved from the New York Yankees to the Minnesota Twins, in a trade for third baseman Josh Donaldson and fellow shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa.
Urshela had been one of the most stable players on the New York squad and now he’ll have a chance to return to his original position with Minnesota, which sent Kiner-Falefa to the Yankees after recently acquiring him in a trade from the Texas Rangers.

With the arrival of Urshela, who last season had a 267 offensive line with 14 home runs and 49 RBI, the Twins improve considerably in terms of production with the bat in position six, putting together second baseman Jorge Polanco, a solid center line in attack.
