Interesting Rule that will affect the Twins' next cuts.
You learn something every day, and not sure that this has always been here or whether it is part of the new CBA, but ESPN NY said in an article (talking about the Mets, but it is applicable for all MLB teams: )
Who is in that position (and still in the MLB camp) for the Twins?
Any player on the 40-man roster who is still in major league camp on March 20 cannot be optioned to the minors if they are injured and unable to perform -- regardless of when the injury actually occurred. If the player does not heal by Opening Day, he has to go on the major league DL. That means major league service time and major league salary are accumulated.
Alex Burnett and Jeff Manship are on their last option season so it does not affect them
