Article: Twins Minor League Report (6/5): Gilmartin Shines, Again
Posted 06 June 2014 - 07:08 AM
Well...is it time to start cutting the chaff in the organization yet? I am thinking it is time to let KC and Diamond seek their fortunes elsewhere. And Promote Gilmartin and May
Diamond probably gets squeezed out of the Rochester rotation before too long, but I'm not sure that the Twins are ready to cut bait on Correia yet. Certainly they want to find a way to make room for Meyer and May, but I don't see either of those guys up with the Twins before they reach 100 inning in Rochester. They Twins have time to be patient, and they love to talk about consistency, and handling adversity. So I don't think any moves are imminent.

In addition, I believe you mixed up the Lakeland starter's line with Tim Shibuya's.

How about Ortiz getting promoted and not missing a beat so far? How long until he cracks the top 20 Twins prospects on MLBPipeline?
Because he has been so streaky in the past, I think we need to see him go into, and come out of, a slump before we know if he has turned the corner.

I guess that is why they are insistent about staying with Correia. He certainly is consistent. Personally, I feel it is well past the time to cut bait and move on with the future in mind. Correia is the past, probably won't even be remembered as a Twin. Same with Pelfrey, even with the remaining year and a half....... think Mike Lamb. Think Puig and the spark. Nolasco......... they are stuck with. Think Barry Zito.
