    The Twins announced the RHP Ricky Nolasco is going on the 15-Day Disabled List with what is being called a "right elbow strain."

    C/OF Chris Herrmann has been promoted to the Twins to take his spot on the roster.

    I really hope May gets his shot. I never want to see Deduno get another start until May and Meyer prove they aren't ready. I might throw up.

    Lets all hope Nolasco can figure this out. Him being effective over his contract is vital for the Twins being competitive.
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    With only one start before the break, Deduno will probably get the start. After that we'll see.

    I'm curious to see what they do after the all star break. I can't fault them for waiting one start when everything would get messed up with the four days off. Hopefully Meyer just stays in Minneapolis.

    Though I doubt it, I wonder if this prepares the way for a Suzuki trade soon after the all star game.
    Papers...business papers.

    And they keep Freyer on the 25 man and 40 man roster why? To placate Gardenhires need for a third catcher?

    This, and is Pinto off the DL at AAA?

    I guess I don't get it either. We are 21st in team OPS and 27th in team ERA. A starting pitcher goes to the DL and we bring up a guy that improves our defensive flexibility. He has good numbers in 33 games in AAA this year, but he has a career .732 OPS in the minors and a career .516 OPS at the MLB level in 241 AB's.

    Gardy, three catchers, no logic required.

    There are only six games before the all star break. Once through the rotation. The team also wanted to drop a pitcher from the 25 man roster. They can make do until then. No point in calling up a starter to pitch one game and then sit for a week. Most likely we will see another move after the all star break. They will most likely shuffle the rotation at that time, perhaps make some other moves as well.

    I think bringing Herrmann up is less about a third catcher and more about another outfielder who could potentially play centerfield after Fuld banged into the fence hard yesterday.

    Deduno for a spot start is no big dea, however I bet it's Swarzak. Whoever gets the start probably won't throw again until Friday, but Deduno has already been off since last Friday the 4th. That's a long break to give him and keep him riding the pine with nothing to do. Swarzak on the other hand last pitched Sunday the 6th, a lay off until Friday would actually coincide with Nolasco's usual rotation spacing.

    Let's hope you are all correct, and we only get one spot start.......
    Lighten up Francis....

    Herrmann as CF insurance? Has he even played that in the minors?

    I don't see the point when you could just throw Plouffe or Arcia out there...

    Here's the sad part...the three catchers jokes are all well and good and deserved....but Chris Hermann may be the only logical choice to call up. We're that shallow offensively.

    And, to me, that's a much more serious problem.

    Says a lot about the current state of the MLB, AAA, and AA teams. Note, I said current state, not the future, nor did I blame anyone, it is just a fact, there is no one in AA or AAA to help a team this inept in the field right now.
    Lighten up Francis....

    Danny Santana?

    edit: Forgot he's on the DL
    edit: Pinto too? He hasn't played since June 24. Out with hip stiffness. Damn.

    Herrmann is the right choice until Danny Santana is healthy. They need to make a trade.

    And it's a matter of historical fact that in any other organization it would be a much harder problem to fix than the manager's Catcher Injury Anxiety Disorder. But the Twins are likely to struggle just as hard to kick their Gardy addiction as they are to put offense on the field.
