completely forgot Hersen signed in 08....didnt play that summer. Wasted yr in service time. Another reason the new system is so good.
Definately he gets added then.
Also dont expect Fiens Walters (Options) & Deduno(options) to make it. Will be a lil unusual if MN keeps 4 Cs on 40 man (has happenned), so could Butera be moved??
Florimon is a 6yr FA if not added also....almost auto for me & reason I dont think Santana will be.

Keep in mind that if they trade, it's quite possible that they end up with someone on another team's 40 man roster...

I looked at all of the Twins' callups over the last decade. Here is a snapshot:
-Called up ~36 players since 2002
-23 out of 36 started the season at AAA
-only 5 players spent minimal time at AAA (3 in the last 2 years)
-only 3 players skipped AAA completely (all in the last 2 years)
-14 had seen previous time in MLB
-only Alexi Casilla started the season below AA
-Mean age was 25.6
-Median age was 24
-Youngest was 21 (Casilla, Liriano)
-Oldest was 30 (Chris Heintz)

To me, there are a whole host of guys to be removed from the 40 man who serve no purpose whatsoever, so that many of these other guys can be placed on it. Here goes:
Just gone list:
Sam Deduno/Cole DeVries (or both)
So that clears up 7 or 8 spaces (preferably 8). And I would like to see 7 people added (allowing for one position open in the offseason): Hicks, Herrmann, Guerra, Gibson, Pugh, Florimon, and either Watts or Bromberg. Bromberg maybe could just be signed again to a contract instead? Of course the addition of Pugh and Watts could mean bye-bye time for Burnett as well, which would open up a space.
