    Starts in terms of the onset of his career and not in regards where in the game he pitches, I assume.

    "Starts" as in where he begins.

    I'm usually not one to complain about this sort of thing, But Burdi should be starting in high A or higher. This is a guy that some scouts think could pitch in bigs right now. Why start him 4 levels away?

    Well, Rob Antony said a couple weeks ago that he had a chance to make it CR this year. So this is progress from there, I guess. I'd start him at FM, personally, but he could be there soon anyway.

    On the flip side you can now make a caravan down to cedar rapids to watch him pitch sooner rather than later.

    Ridiculous. Best RHRP in the organization (and I include the MLB arms in this assessment) He belongs at least at Fort Myers.

    Looks like the Twins saved about $200K total now. Maybe they will try to entice one of the late rounders...

    And he (Tanner English) had 4 hits in his debut...including a home run.

    I couldn't find anything yet. The following is from yesterday:

    The Minnesota Twins selected John Curtiss, the red-shirt sophomore right-handed pitcher, in the 6th round as the 170th overall pick. Although he only spent two seasons in a Texas uniform, Curtiss has earned his spot in the MLB. Curtiss had Tommy John surgery after his freshman season, keeping him out all of last season. Curtiss returned this season with a 2.23 ERA as the Horns’ closer. Curtiss was initially drafted out of high school by the Rockies, but deferred to become a Texas Longhorn. He graduated early from UT, so odds are he will sign on with the Twins this summer.

    http://www.readthehorn.com/sports/baseball/96217/longhorns_headed_to_the_mlb


    A little confused on his academic background. Red-shirt sophmore; spent only 2 years at UT; but he graduated.

    So did he get his degree in 3 years?

    I get that he had TJ after his freshman year (somewhere other than Texas?) then didn't pitch in 2013 but did pitch in 2014, graduated and was drafted. I guess the red-shirt sophomore only applies to his status in college ball.

    You could be right in your assessment of Burdi. Still, he will face better lineups in the Midwest League then he has ever faced before. I think with a young guy like this it better to be promoting him then finding yourself demoting him, if it turns out he is bit overmatched. As good as he likely is, he will see tighter strike zones then he has seen before. I assume the Twins want a smooth adjustment for him. I hope to see quick promotions as well.

    In the age of stupidity...continuing along the likes of Stephen Drew et al, but in regards to the Rule IV Draft.

    I give you Dustin DeMuth...the Twins 8th RD pick from a year ago.

    Drafted in the 8th round (230th overall) by the Minnesota Twins in 2013 (did not sign) Draft Report [+]
    Drafted in the 5th round (146th overall) by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2014 (signed for $50,000) Draft Report [+]

    Source: http://www.baseballamerica.com/stati...rs/cards/3306/
    Who likely would have gotten more than $50K had he signed with the Twins.

    Looks to be a good hitter...hate to see that he got away.

    Twins slots this year as #5 slot, they were #4 last year.

    5. Jake Reed - $356,400 - $350,000
    6. John Curtiss - $266,900
    7. Andro Cutura - $199.900 - $175,000
    8. Keaton Steele - $161,300 - $115,000
