I would much rather spend $$ on a CF'er and play Polanco/Arreaz at SS/2B for 80 games than spend $$ on a SS and play Celistino for 80 games. I just don't think Kiermier is an upgrade anymore.that's what makes the Twins' situation so iffy.
you have to go into the season assuming that Buxton will only be available for 100 games if you're lucky - so you need another CF for the other 62 games or more.
and at SS, Royce Lewis isn't going to be ready until mid-season at the earliest, so the Twins need a starting SS for at least half the season.
but how much money do you want to tie up in part-time players?
putting the roster together is going to be a challenge.
