I was thinking of offering up Jurrjens, who has a full three year contract left, plus maybe a 2010 pick for Verlander who has an expiring contract. The team that has Verlander is in last so there is really no benefit for him not to trade for a better potential keeper contract.
If that goes through, I was also thinking of trading Santana, who has an expiring contract for Mauer who has another year left after this one. Should I worry about Santana not getting that many strikeouts lately? I need help in the catcher slot so this seemed fitting... I would really like an OF or SS, but I think I need to keep Morgan and Evereth out there for their steals right now.
Any other ideas of who I should possibly target? My category rankings are listed below so this way you know what I need help in and what I have some room to play...

If you get Verlander there (and I'd want him) then I could see trading Johan, but I wouldn't trade him for Mauer. You can do better than that. You can get a Crawford, or at worst, a Victorino for Johan.
