Rotation becomes clear as Minnesota Twins cut two more

Attached Image: wlaters.jpg The Minnesota Twins announce today that they have send pitchers Samuel Deduno and P.J. Walters to AAA, leaving 29 players on the active roster.

A tweaked groin during his last start in the World Baseball Classic derailed Deduno’s chances of making the rotation to open the season.[PRBREAK][/PRBREAK] He had pitched extremely well in the international competition, allowing just one earned run in 13 innings while striking out 17 and walked just five. Had it not have been for the injury, Deduno would likely have been a member of the rotation.

Walters, meanwhile, had his name in the conversation this spring by not allowing many runs. However, he walked eight batters in 13 innings and, in his most recent outing against the Blue Jays, Walters was smacked around a bit.

These two moves clear the path for pitchers Cole Devries and Liam Hendriks to join the rotation, at least while Scott Diamond recovers from his offseason elbow injury.

With the roster set at 29, the remaining positional race to focus on will be the last two spot in the bullpen which should come down to Tyler Robertson, Josh Roenicke and Alex Burnett.
