Just started a new Franchise with the Twins, any suggestions?
Mauer, Plouffe and Dozier are good ones to trade...you could try to get a better pitcher. They have a decent farm system...so you should be able to trade a few of those guys to get a bigger name player. Don't expect to hit many homeruns...they are a team that is built off singles and Doubles...aside from Sano and Byung Ho Park. I would build a team around Sano, Buxton and Berrios.
I traded away Perkins in the 2016 offseason to the Red Sox for Blake Swihart (signed Aroldis Chapman for 11 mil per over 4 years) Ricky Nolasco to the Angels with somebody(can't remember) for Tyler Skaggs...dumped Suzuki like a bad habit. Trade Plouffe and move Sano to 3rd
I don't know how long the contracts are, but I'd try and move Santana (I assume Gibson is in their longer plans since he's younger), Nolasco, etc, maybe get someone like a Matt Moore or a Chris Archer from Tampa Bay. Build around Sano and Buxton like others have said.
