Matt Tomshaw is one of my Adopt a Prospects. I've been a fan for a few years and have always believed in his approach to pitching. Crafty - Smart - 4 Very Good Pitches to keep hitters off balanced - Marksman (Control) - Lefty - Never Rattled!!!
He needs and deserves a move up after he All Star Game. Great Pick Seth - Seems I didn't need to campaign after all. Well Deserved

You have to feel good about the future of Twins pitching. Alex Meyer isn't even on this list. Hughes and Gibson seem set for the next 5 or 6 years in the rotation. May and Meyer should be there to stay soon. Berrios is only a year away at this rate.... if he finishes at Double AA this year. Johnson /Gilmartin/Diamond are great backups/spot starters, Stewart is a year behind Berrios... Dare we say the pitching rich Minnesota Twins???

Kris Johnson and Trevor May have the same walking disease. May is doing better than years past but if they can get their walk rate below 3.00 I can see either of them in the starting rotation in Minnesota.

Future does look bright though. Hughes has been fantastic after a couple of shaky starts early on and Deduno has been good for the most part as well. I wouldn't be surprised if we see May in the fall and Meyer by mid season next year. There will be one slot opening up with Correia's departure at season's end.
If Nolasco hadn't pitched so poorly to start the season he might have been a prime trade candidate to a pitching starved team with a surplus of outfielders and infielders.

These pitching numbers are very encouraging. I'm going to have to see if I can find some video of "The Thing."

The Twins are pressed to find room for the guys down in AAA, and those spots will come. People will get hurt, double-headers will need pitchers. Patience. If the guys in AAA continue to pitch this well the Twins will be looking to find ways to get them on the squad. Matty Guerrier and "Just Bombs" Jared Burton may may be looking for somewhere else to pitch.
