MLB Trade Rumors: Joe Nathan Opts for Tommy John Surgery

Twins closer Joe Nathan has elected to have Tommy John surgery, so the Twins are left with internal options Jon Rauch and Matt Geurrier as their closers to begin the 2010 season. Or, they could trade for the Padres Heath Bell. The Twins apparently are already linked to Bell based on recent rumors.

What would it take to get Bell from the Padres? Looking at Baseball America's Prospect Handbook, the Twins top 5 prospects are:

Aaron Hicks, OF

Wilson Ramos, C

Kyle Gibson, RHP

Miguel Sano, SS/3B

Ben Revere, OF

With the Padres looking to deal Bell sometime this year, does a package of two of these prospects get the deal done?
