Twins Option Four Players

Following their game in Bradenton on Tuesday, the Twins optioned four of their players. LHP Stephen Gonsalves, infielder Nick Gordon and outfielder LaMonte Wade were optioned to Rochester. Meanwhile, infielder Luis Arraez was optioned to Double-A Pensacola.

Gonsalves started for the Twins in Bradenton on Tuesday and went three innings. He was charged with four runs (3 earned) on four hits and two walks in three innings. He struck out three. He posted a 5.63 ERA over eight spring training innings.

Wade entered the game late and went 1-for-2 with a triple and three RBI. For the spring, he hit .296 with a .931 OPS. He had 10 RBI in 27 at-bats.

Gordon went 0-for-2 on Tuesday to drop his spring batting average to .300 in 20 at- bats.

Arraez, like Wade and Gordon, was added to the 40-man roster this past offseason. He had just three hits in 18 at bats, but he showed defensive versatility around the infield.

The moves drop the Twins roster to 47 players. With the season just over two weeks away, there are still a lot of roster cuts to be made. Some of the decisions may be fairly difficult.

The wrong Reed has trade value and has earned a long leash. Last year about this time we had members who wanted to DFA Gibson and Pressly. 

I'm not sure about his trade value right now. MLB is a "what have you done for me lately" kind of league. He flamed out last year and was horrible after a hot start. This spring he has had 1 decent inning and been lit up badly.I wanna believe he can right his ship, and ok, its still only ST. I hope he shakes off whatever is bothering him. At some point you just gotta turn the page.
