    NOTES: The data below is based on what I know or think I know. It may not be 100% accurate.
    Rule V and MiL FA are estimations and will be corrected as the dates approach.
    The "+c" designation reflects the total amount of innings the pitcher threw in his final college season plus his initial professional season.

      Updated to include Slama's activation and recent starting pitchers.

      Also, I've changed the widths so that everyone's name appears on one line. You will have to scroll over further to find Rule V and MiL FA info (as well as the other columns), but I think it looks better.

      Updated again...

      Eric Hurley asked for - and was granted - his release.

      Trevor Plouffe is on a rehab assignment in Rochester.

      Luke French was sent to AA.

      Sean Burroughs was placed on the DL.

      This leaves the Red Wings a little light.

      Jeremy - Hein Robb ... if he signed in 7/08, would he not be Rule 5 eligible after 2012?

      Good catch. Screwed up in the transfer from spreadsheet to webpage.

      In most cases, yes... but reading the rule players "signed at age 18 or younger and have been in the organization for five years" led me to believe that since Robb wasn't technically in the organization in 2009 he has another year. Could I be wrong? Yes.

      There were some others that I adjusted. I usually put in a year when I find a new guy, but then don't always change it when I find the official signing date.

      God, yes. Must have copied that over from somewhere else without adjusting.


      Thanks for catching those mistakes. I'm sure there are more!

      Thanks guys. I started keeping track of the organizational rosters 5-6 years ago on an excel spreadsheet... it's evolved quite a bit over time, but it got to the point where it needed to become something I could share. The meat of it made it over, but there is way too much information on the spreadsheet to ever stop updating it.

      Great stuff. Thanks for the good work. Looks like the Twins will have their hands full this off-season trying to protect players and adding at least 2 arms. I just cannot see them be successful without trades.

      Updated rotations to include today's starting pitchers (for most games).

      Deleted the contract details at the bottom. I'll post them here if figures change.

      FM: Pat Dean to D.L. Kyle Gibson to rehab.

      Beloit: Cole Johnson activated. Dallas Gallant to D.L.

      E-Town: Michael Quesada suspended. Kelly Cross promoted from GCL.

      what injury for Dean (just innings???)
      Quesada suspended for what.....did he get into Kenny Vargas' "weight loss supplements"?

      I have no details. Seth probably does though...
    1. Jeremy Nygaard's Avatar

      Quesada will be serving a 50-game suspension. He'll have to serve this suspension only when the E-Twins are playing, so (if he remains in the organization) he won't be eligible to play again until - depending on their schedule next year - around 7/20. (He will serve 19 games this year and 31 next year.)

      Kyle Gibson has been activated and assigned to Fort Myers.

      Trevor Plouffe has been activated and Nishi optioned to Rochester. (Payroll doesn't change- Plouffe was on major league DL and Nishi makes his money either way.)

      Rotations updated (which will be the norm, so I won't post it) and other aesthetically pleasing things.

      Nothing too interesting today.

      The Red Wings activated JR Towles and Mike Hollimon.
    1. Jeremy Nygaard's Avatar
      Jeremy Nygaard -
      The Twins and Wings flopped Dozier for Pedro Florimon. The Twins payroll doesn't change. The pro-rated amount for the remainder of the year ($136,400) will now go to Florimon instead of Dozier.

      Dozier was sent down on his first optional assignment. The interesting thing is that the Red Wings have exactly 20 days left in their season and that for an option to count, it has to be for AT LEAST 20 days. So, in my estimation, if Dozier finishes the regular season in AAA and is called up before the Twins game on 9/4, the option won't actually count.

      Florimon was added to the 40-man roster. He has an option remaining.

      Another update:

      Swarzak activated (no salary change).

      Perdomo and Manship down (both pro-rated reduction of league minimum, $133,800).

      Team salary reduced by $267,600 to $97,609,300. (That number will increase when the Twins make another move.)

      Also, to make room for players sent down, the David Bromberg was moved to AA.

      French was sent to AA probably a week ago. I don't think he's actually pitched yet there.
