Blackburn and Oliveros were no-brainers. I am amazed that Harden and Perez are not in the list as well. Guerra too. They all will be out.

Interesting to see whether Hermsen is still there tomorrow. He has been the most overmatched P out there whose initials are not AB...

Even with zero chance of making the Twins I'm surprised they reassigned Meyer so early. He pitched pretty well so Im surprised they didnt keep him around a little longer.

Bremer or Provus mentioned that they reassigned Meyer so early was so that he could get opportunities to start which he hasn't been getting at big league camp.

Meyer is a starting pitcher. He's going to start at AA. He needs to build up some innings and to do that, needs to go down and start playing in minor league games to do that.

Bingo. He showed plenty during this brief audition though. Gardy's gotta be excited.

Happy if he starts in AA. Many expected Meyer to start in A+ ball, so that is a plus. Hope he moves to AAA rapidly.
