Oswaldo Arcia and Dan Sattler were promoted from Fort Myers to New Britain yesterday.

Today, we've learned of three transactions so far:

Bobby Lanigan and Caleb Thielbar from New Britain to Rochester

and (as expected)

Michael Tonkin from Beloit to Fort Myers.


These moves put the Red Wings at 25 and leave the Rockcats at 23. The Miracle is at their limit, but the Snappers are short one player. (Cole Johnson, anybody?)

Carlos Gutierrez to the DL... reports from Rochester indicate he was sitting 88-91 with the fastball. Something wasn't right.

The second one is Lester Oliveros to the DL... this one was more surprising. he was throwing pretty well in his appearance with the Twins.

That leaves New Britain with only 10 pitchers. Wonder who they'll promote from Fort Myers - Watts? Fuentes?

Seth, you're more connected. How often do the minor league teams fake an injury to create spots?
I know players are DLd at start of season to reamain with team till a roster spot opens but I have doubts Lester is hurt.

Gallant definitely deserved it based on performance. He was just held back in EST/ET because he had Tommy John a year ago.

Well... AAA is the repository of never have beens for the Twins :) No surprise there... I am not even surprised that the former manager's son (27 year old Shawn Roof) is still with the team at AA instead of getting a kid from Fort Myers there or that 24 year old Liddle's nephew is in Beloit instead of some kids who are currently in E-town (like DJ Hicks for example...) But that's the Twins' way.

Making way for a Sano promotion?

Apparently he (Sano) is not in the lineup tonight... let's start rumors ;)

I am not sure what is going on with Perez, but this seems to be more complicated that what it is. He has been playing really well recently. Something is going on...

TheBaseballGeek
07-06-2012, 05:45 PM
I'd guess that would mean a Sano promotion will be coming pretty soon. Just listened to the Miracle radio guys who kind of alluded to such, saying that Sano + the flexibility of Leer meant there wasn't a lot of room for Perez.

He's out with a quad injury. And he's been brutal. There is no chance, wait... there is a 1% chance he gets promoted.

Until I hear something more concrete, I'm gonna go with his release being due to "non-baseball" reasons.

greengoblinrulz
07-06-2012, 09:55 PM
Perez released....wow. Hope you guys with more connections can find out the story behind this.
He musta kept trying to pull the ball instead of goin the other way........something like that.

24yrs old & .284/.339/.402 since May 1 in 45gms w/6doubles 4hr 23rbi 17k 14bb.......pretty solid numbers to be waived, must be bad.

Good point. I had forgotten about his injury, though the suggestion of promoting him wasn't intended to mean right away. I should've clarified that.

Wasn't real sure I bought the whole "No room for him" line anyway. There should always be room for a guy like that, especially in that lineup.

Highabove

Theilbar has been with Rochester for a while. He's doing very well, does need to bring the walks down.
A story in the making for the former Saint?

IdahoPilgrim
07-07-2012, 03:56 PM
Not a promotion but another transaction: Joe Benson is moved to Fort Myers.

I would assume this is similar to what they did with Ramirez when he came off of injury - leave him in Fort Myers for a while (longer than a normal rehab stint) and then eventually move him back up to AA.

07-07-2012, 04:54 PM
Me and my son watched Beloit play in Clinton on Friday night. Before the game I asked Manager Prada if Sano was going to play (the main reason we drove down to Iowa), he said Sano would be back in the line-up Saturday evening, and nothing was wrong with him, just rest, long hot season.

Carter had one of the highest K/9 rates in the organization 11.5 or so. But his ERA was high and he is 25 and still in Beloit. I think that the Twins held him back because he was a 39th round pick. He should have been at least at AA and see whether he failed there.

guy who's playin well in Ft Myers is Daniel Ortiz. Unfortunately, he's blocked in AA by Benson(by weekend), Hicks & Arcia. Do that means we have Clete Thomas essentially blocking him & Evan Bigby. Get rid of some of these AAA duds.

Not sure Thomas is really blocking anyone. Benson will be up in AAA as soon as he starts hitting again, Hicks/Arcia most likely aren't ready yet.

Mason Melotakis and Zack Jones promoted from Elizabethton to Beloit.

MWLFan
07-17-2012, 11:16 AM
Seth any idea on what they want Jason Wheeler to work on? He has run a few good games out there in a row now. Is it make up, velocity or consistency working down in the zone? Just wondering as we have seen quite a few guys move from the Beloit staff and he is still there. I am fine with seeing him on the Snappers as I may get to see him pitch and the Team has a real good shot at winning when he is out there. Considering he is a College Arm and has been pretty good at this level they must have some issues with his ability to succeed at the next level.

TRex
07-17-2012, 11:27 AM
I'm with you MWLFan, in that Wheeler seems to have earned a promotion. I was amazed, however, that even though he is a college arm, he is still the youngest pitcher on the Beloit roster! I suppose that is an indictment on the Twins' pitching prospects.

Seth Stohs
07-17-2012, 11:51 AM
I guess I'm not sure... However, Summers has been, by far, the Snappers best pitcher the last 2+ months, so it makes sense for him to move as a starter. Dempster's been pretty good as well, and frankly, he was in Ft. Myers the 2nd half of last year too, so he should move up.

Shane Wahl
07-17-2012, 11:55 AM
Matt Summers and Clinton Dempster promoted from Rochester to Ft. Myers.
Mason Melotakis and Zack Jones promoted from Elizabethton to Beloit.

I like these and the Bigley promotion. Benson, Hicks, and Arcia manning the New Britain OF together for at least a bit!

MWLFan
07-17-2012, 01:36 PM
I have seen Summers pitch (3) more times then Wheeler (1). He deserves the next step and was ready. Dempster, thats fine. Just looking at the Beloit staff and see Wheeler and Shibuya there and think, what are they working on to improve? I have seen Shibuya twice and one time it was ugly and the next man, lights out. Looked like 2 different guys. But also that defense behind these guys has not always been helpful. Wondering if it was maybe that both need some "seasoning" from a emotional standpoint. I have seen that more then once in Beloit and it is displayed by some guys who are not in uniform for every game and hang out in the stands with "patrons". Not wise in low A, but 19-22 year old guys...yeah might have other motivations going on.

Carson deserves it, but I'd say that Benson would be the guy called up.

greengoblinrulz
07-18-2012, 01:21 PM
Carson is a 31 yr old player with no future with this team as out OF depth (almost ready to go OF depth) is outstanding. 34RBI in 88gms (tho a .325BA w/RISP is decieving) isnt enough to get me excited.

Thrylos
07-18-2012, 01:22 PM
Carson deserves it, but I'd say that Benson would be the guy called up.

Benson needs a couple of hundred of consistent PAs this season before he gets called up.

Calling him up on the other hand, would make him a very interesting trivia question answer (and I don't know whether any other player ever did that) : Name the one player who played at every level of affiliated professional baseball in the same season.

He started in Rochester (AAA) then moved to New Britain (AA) then got hurt and played for the GCL Twins (Rk) then up to Fort Myers (A+)... Would be fun to see him in the majors on second thought just because of this. :)

mike wants wins
07-18-2012, 01:27 PM
Benson? I'd guess tosoni....no downside for his long term development. I'd guess they'd want Benson to keep gaining confidence. Plus, didn't TK just talk up Bigley, isn't that always a sign a guy is next up?

TRex
07-18-2012, 01:31 PM
Mostly tongue-in-cheek, but...

Oswaldo Arcia was pinch-hit for in the third inning of this afternoon's Rock Cats game for no apparent reason. It's not necessarily 'Twins like', but someone who is on the 40-man and has an OPS over 1.000 in his last 70 AB may be worth a look. And the Twins have a history of aggressively promoting Arcia.

I guess an alternative reason for Arcia's departure is that he was included in a trade.

greengoblinrulz
07-18-2012, 01:42 PM
we will see an Arcia/Benson Sept platoon IMO or both playin regularly with Willingham DHing.

I honestly doubt it's Kepler (just fun to throw out the speculation). Rhodes and Vargas (whenever he can) would probably come up first, as the Snappers could use a first baseman.

Love players who truly earn their promotions!!!:rolleyes:

I get it that he has 51 career AAA starts (4.27 era in 276 IP) & 19 MLB starts w/Wsh (5.33era in 106IP), but I just think that David Bromberg needs to get to AAA & to develop your own guys.

He is Dutch, so maybe Bert had a say in the move.

Yeah. They were at 25 after the moves earlier this week. The only news involving Fort Myers today was Goncalves moving up. They played early today, so I'm guessing news will be coming out soon about who they promoted. New Britain is in need too, after today's moves, they only have 22 guys on their roster.

That would make sense.

I saw this on the Miracle Twitter feed: Miracle add OF Rene Tosoni to active roster for today's game.

I guess for him to be officially added to their roster, his option would have had to be transferred, which I haven't seen. Regardless, the Rockcats will need to get guys from somewhere...

Anyone know why Rogers is getting the chance to start but the rest of the pitchers at E'ton drafted this year (and almost all have been impressive in their small sample size!) have all gotten relief duty? I'm not sure about the other pitchers work loads prior to the draft, but so far Rogers is the only member of the 2012 E'ton draft class who has been pushed for innings.

Gotta keep Rivera and his veteran presence in the Roch lineup as much as possible you know.

And keep Herrmann motivated to make the playoffs with the future outfield.

carson would be the perfect 4th outfielder for the stretch, letting the Twins look more at Mastro. Plus, he'd fill a 40-man spot that could be jettisoned in the fall. Tosoni and Benson will both stick with New Britain as they head for the playoffs, probably. All three will start with Rochester next year...with Tosoni possibly coming off the 40-man roster.

Why does Mastro need to be "looked at" more?

he's a 4th outfielder who can run and play all 3 spots. That's realized already.

I'm for getting a corner outfielder to the bigs that can the dang ball out, rather than slash/dash.

Twins are already littered with too many of them.

Take last night. Dozier hitting sixth, with "weaker" guys 7-9

Only with the Twins.

Seems like we'll be reading something in the police blotter about this, although Beloit is in WI so there might be a lot to comb through. Getting cut only 9 innings into a promotion is pretty strange otherwise.

13 hits in 10 innings at Eliz, ERA 5.4, 5 walks to go with 12 Ks
8 hits in 9 innings at Beloit 5 more walks ERA of 4

not exactly a stud letting go.

He was just drafted last year. One of Few strikeout Lefties in the organization. Some of the issues should/would have been ironed as he progressed. Too fast to pull the trigger. Actually, just for fun, have a look at what Oswaldo Arcia did his first 2 seasons in the Twins organization. Something is going on here....

Corey Kimes from Etown to Beloit. Is that 10 pitchers that have been sent up but only 1 position player?

Must have happened right after tonight's game? He pitched five shutout innings in Bristol! Good for him!

Just found out that Kimes has NOT been promoted to Beloit at this time... However, Eddie Rosario is on his way back to the Snappers.

Buxton with is 2nd triple,to go with 2 HRs since coming off injury.

I would LOVE for him to finish the year in Eliz. Sady, I doubt that'll happen.

What would it hurt?

well the .203/.295/.420 (as of yesterday) line isn't exactly dominating. He's had a couple of decent games. Promoting him due to a small sample size is hardly what I'd call smart. He'll still be quite young for his age in Elizabethon next year.

There's no reason to move Buxton up, and there's even less reason to worry about his stat line.

Why not?
Why not let him try the Appy League?
Why have him play another year of Rook ball next year?

Why not be a little more aggressive, if the kid is really that good?

he isn't that good... not yet anyways. having the tools is one thing, getting results is another. He's getting used to using a wood bat for the first time as well as facing tougher competition. You don't just promote a guy cause he had a couple of decent games.

My assumption is that he will go to Beloit next season regardless of where he starts or finishes this season.

You just made my day, Seth. I'm in Beloit right now and will be at the next two games (tonight and tomorrow). Was hoping he might get back in time.

Now the Snappers are tweeting that Kimes HAS been promoted to Beloit. Cole Johnson put on the DL

60ft6in has broke all the Snappers promotions before they've been announced, so I was a little surprised when it looked like he was wrong. He wasn't wrong.

Why would people care if Buxton is in GCL or Appy this year? If he gets to Beloit that is interesting. All he needs is reps for the rest of the year, either league is fine.

Buxton will go to Etown next year. He will not be rushed to A ball and Coach Reed is one of the better hitting coaches the Twins have.

Thanks... I thought maybe I heard some incorrect info when Seth reported. Just trying to add something when I can...!

I was wrong. I asked about Kimes to Beloit, and if there were any other moves. I got the "No" answer, and thought it was regarding Kimes, but it was actually about any other transactions... other than the addition of Rosario back on to the roster.

I do, but that doesn't mean much... I think that with his talent, they should be patient if they need to be. But I think that the new rules which gets players signed sooner and playing earlier in the summer is a good one. Buxton signed pretty quickly and despite missing 8-10 days, he's played quite a bit and will go to instructs. I'm sure it'll be a numbers game too, but if he shows he's ready for that level, they're not going to block him.

Buxton will be in Elizabethon. Why rush him? He's not ripping up the GCL, and it isn't as though there aren't a ton of good OF prospects ahead of him....

gonna be hard to judge Buxton totally by his numbers this yr due to his 1-27start
I think he's been better than expected (to me anyways) since then.... 14/47 (.298BAA) w/.681 slgg since then in 15gms
