    Correct... the top prospects, they aren't afraid to move up quickly. Buxton will likely debut at 21. Sano will likely have just turned 21 when he debuts. They, as they should, move guys according to when they're ready to move.

    Who is going to push Gibbons to the pen? Even if Stewart, Gonsalves and Thorpe all start at Appy that still leaves 2 or 3 starters. Why do you think Gonzalez, who pitched all 20 games last year from the pen, starts instead of Gibbons who was tied with Thorpe for most starts at GCL last season? Gibbons MiLB page also lists him as being on the Twins minor league reserve list but it doesn't list Gonzalez. I've never seen that before...thought it was interesting.

    Absolutely agree. I wanted the Twins to bring in some above average pitching. They didn't. IMO bringing in Hughes and Pelfrey for multiple years was a big mistake. If either of them prevent a deserving prospect from starting that is a shame.
