Intra-division trades in Major League Baseball aren't extremely common, and they're oftentimes more difficult to work out than swaps between clubs that don't see each other as often. For the Kansas City Royals and Minnesota Twins, this process reportedly unfolded at least a little bit as of late.

Per Dan Hayes of The Athletic, Minnesota recently inquired about Royals outfielder Michael A. Taylor. MLB Trade Rumors adds that nothing indicates that those discussions are still happening as the month of February draws near. Taylor garnered trade interest at the 2022 trade deadline but was ultimately kept in town, and Kansas City clearly doesn't want to part ways with him for anything less than the club's ideal asking price despite making him available. That price may be higher than initially thought, as one of the main reasons why talks with the Twins didn't progress was that the Royals wanted pitcher Josh Winder.
