I'd love to see both Achter and Tonkin in the big leagues. Unfortunately, the Twins need to clear some space for them.

There are at least a handful of pitchers at AAA that look like they deserve a chance with the Twins. That's pretty neat.

Is Zack Jones still recovering from surgery?

Yeah, Jones is in Ft. Myers, just working out. He likely won't pitch a lot this year.

Have all of these guys been pegged as relievers only or are any building innings still having the chance to start?

Shibuya could eventually be given another shot at starting, I would think, but the others are relievers at this stage of their careers.

The Pitching depth is looking so much better in both the bullpen and the rotation at the upper levels. Ryan Pressly was pretty decent last year with the Twins and this year at Rochester there are three or four guys doing equal if not better than he is (and he is having a very good season). Bullpen depth is excellent.

Why is Burton still on the roster? :)
