Roster Starting to Come Together

A lot of key information has been coming out of Twins camp on Sunday morning. First, Assistant GM Rob Antony appeared as a guest of Sunday Morning Sports Talk on 1500espn with Tom Pelissero and Jim Souhan.

He said many things that I found interesting, but these are the three that stood out most to me:


1.) Maloney and Burton have separated themselves, so it's down to Manship, Burnett, Fien and Waldrop for ONE bullpen spot.
2.) Parmelee has forced his way onto the roster, so it's likely Butera, Towles, Burroughs, Florimon and Revere battling for TWO bench spots. Very interesting in that a.) 3rd catcher isn't a given, and b.) Revere is not a given.

Not long later, the Twins media core met with manager Ron Gardenhire and more information was set forth:
  • Josh Willingham will be the Twins starting Left Fielder
  • Denard Span will be the Twins starting Center Fielder
  • Right Field will be up for grabs between Trevor Plouffe, Chris Parmelee and Ben Revere, although...
  • Ben Revere will most likely be the team's 4th outfielder.
That is a lot of information in starting to clear things up as rosters will likely be set within a week. Antony also commented that Plouffe likely would be available to play in 3-4 days.

So, what do we make of it all? Parmelee has forced his way onto the roster. Right Field remains a question mark, but the biggest thing that needs to be answered is whether or not Justin Morneau will play 1B or just DH. That matters for where Parmelee plays most frequently. It also affects where Ryan Doumit plays, and how much, and in turn, it affects whether or not the Twins keep a third catcher.

What do you think of it all? What surprises you most? What questions do these answers now present?
