Buxton, Meyer, Sano Among 16 Sent to Minors Today

Attached Image: Buxton_Byron_Batting_Rinaldi_686.jpg The Twins just announced that 16 players were told this morning they will be sent to minor league camp. Seven 40 man roster guys were optioned. So were nine non-roster invitees, including the team's top three prospects. Byron Buxton homered yesterday and was sent down this morning. So was Miguel Sano, though that obviously comes as no surprise. In a bit of a surprise, Alex Meyer was also sent down. [PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]

The Twins optioned lefties Logan Darnell, Edgar Ibarra and Brooks Raley. Right-hander Trevor May was also optioned. Kennys Vargas, Max Kepler and Jorge Polanco were optioned as well.

Those re-assigned to minor league camp (meaning guys not on the 40 man roster) included nine more players. Along with Meyer, Buxton and Sano, the team also sent pitchers Lester Oliveros, Yohan Pino down. Catchers Kyle Knudson, Matt Koch and Stuart Turner will soon report to minor league camp. Also, outfielder Chris Rahl.

The Twins roster now consists of 48 players. They have 22 pitchers, five catchers, 12 infielders and nine outfielders.

I spent time talking this morning with the three catchers who were sent down. Stuart Turner talked about his being a great opportunity for him, one he was very thankful for. Matt Koch was excited to learn from the likes of Terry Steinbach and work with some of the pitchers he did. This is Knudson's second big league spring training, so he knew it would be coming soon.

I also talked to Max Kepler who said he has really improved his outlook and ability to handle struggles. Logan Darnell was enjoying his time in camp, learning a lot. He hopes to be in the Rochester rotation this year.
