The Twins have finally revealed the roster. Here it is:
Here is another view of the team's summer camp roster:
4:15 p.m. CT
MLB.com's Do-Hyoung Park reports that the Twins aren't expected to reveal their roster until tomorrow. What a buzzkill.
3:45 p.m. CT
Darren Wolfson reported that reliever Danny Coulombe, who was a non-roster invitee in spring training, will be on the 60-man roster. Coulombe, a left-hander, struck out seven batters and gave up one run over four innings of work prior to spring training being suspended. He has 153 MLB games under his belt, most of which came with Oakland.

Ope, deadline passed. Guess we're back to no Twins baseball this year.
2:35 p.m. CT
The Cincinnati Reds have also now announced the players going to what they're calling Summer Camp. Sounds wholesome. An item of note is they've elected to leave three open spots on their roster, at least for now.
1:45 p.m. CT
The Tampa Bay Rays have become the first team to reveal its full 60-man roster. An interesting item to note is that they have split the to pool into 37 players who will be training at Tropicana Field and 23 who will be based in Port Charlotte, which is Tampa Bay's spring training site.
The Twins are expected to use CHS Field, which normally hosts the St. Paul Saints, as the home of their "taxi squad."
1:10 p.m. CT
Seth has confirmed down in the comments that catching prospect Ryan Jeffers will be a member of this 60-man roster. That means four of Twins Daily's current top-six prospects have made the cut. Will Jordan Balazovic and/or Jhoan Duran join Lewis, Kirilloff, Larnach and Jeffers?
It would be a surprise if Duran was left off, given that he's on the 40-man roster, but that doesn't guarantee he'll make the cut. Remember, teams can make changes to this 60-player pool.
Dan Hayes of The Athletic reported that the top prospects in the Twins system are likely to be among those headed to the Twin Cities for camp.
In addition to Royce Lewis, Alex Kirilloff and Trevor Larnach, Darren Wolfson of KSTP added Brent Rooker’s name to the list.
As seen above, Wolfson also reported that Northfield native and former Twins and St. Paul Saints pitcher Caleb Thielbar will also be among the players in camp. Expect there to be a mix of both prospects and minor league veterans among the pool of players included. It’s worth pointing on that not everyone currently on the team’s 40-man roster is guaranteed to be participating in camp.
No player outside of this pool of 60 players will be allowed to participate in training camp. There can be changes made to the 60-man roster, but once someone has been removed from a team's pool, they cannot be re-added to that same team's pool.
