Alex Anthopoulos, the former Blue Jays general manager and current vice president of baseball operations for the Dodgers, is reportedly among several executives generating early consideration for the vacant Minnesota Twins' GM position.

Anthopolous was one of many names mentioned Friday by FanRag's Jon Heyman, who listed the Dodgers' senior VP of baseball operations Josh Byrnes, Rangers assistant GM Thad Levine, and former Red Sox GM Ben Cherington as other rumored candidates.
