Er, no they wouldn't. The MLPA simply has no reason to care about those not in their membership (and these players are NOT members in any meaningful sense), even perspective or impending members.

Prior's career WAR is significantly lower than Mauer's. Prior hasn't pitched in the ML for the better half of the past decade.
Prior's WAR is 15.7, with peak of 7.4 in 2003Mauer's WAR...
I think that this means they are committed to Presley, and want to keep their options open with Hicks. They're plan is probably Hicks as the Starter and Pressley as the 4th OF. If Hicks doesn't...

Innaccuracies in the media? maybe that's why journalists are amongst the least trusted professions. Teachers are amongst the more trusted.

Let me be a naysayer for the sake of naysaying:
1) His recovery time tells us little other than he heals fast from Tommy John. How's his pitching? And you can't just pick and choose which months...

Well, they signed Correia because the Twins offered him what a lot of commentators considered an above-market deal. I think it was about the Money and years for him. What you say is true about...

Why are we talking about dumping him from the 40-Man Roster? There is so much dead-weight on it currently, why dump a 24-year old Starting Pitcher?
And it's not like there are guys at AA he's...

Well, they can't. "Can't Miss" pitching prospects get listed towards the top of the 'best-100 prospect' charts. Rosario is near the bottom in those, if he even makes it at all.
And those types...

Apparently, Nishioka checked out with our scouts. So I don't think it's as simple as that.
Top-flight Japanese pitchers tend to be a crapshoot, and none of them seem to have the control the Twins...

But the "iron isn't hot" with Dosier, it's marginally above room temperature. Like you say later, he's been a decent hitter for about four months and prior to that, he was an aging, marginal...
