    2nd Half Promotions

    Oswaldo Arcia and Dan Sattler were promoted from Fort Myers to New Britain yesterday.

    Today, we've learned of three transactions so far:

    Bobby Lanigan and Caleb Thielbar from New Britain to Rochester

    and (as expected)

    Michael Tonkin from Beloit to Fort Myers.


    These moves put the Red Wings at 25 and leave the Rockcats at 23. The Miracle is at their limit, but the Snappers are short one player. (Cole Johnson, anybody?)

    what were the corresponding ROC moves as they were 25 active players before the 2 moves?? that includes the promotion of Steve Hirschfield 2 days ago.

    Carlos Gutierrez to the DL... reports from Rochester indicate he was sitting 88-91 with the fastball. Something wasn't right.

    The second one is Lester Oliveros to the DL... this one was more surprising. he was throwing pretty well in his appearance with the Twins.

    That leaves New Britain with only 10 pitchers. Wonder who they'll promote from Fort Myers - Watts? Fuentes?

    Gutierrez continues to struggle. Disappointing for him.

    Seth, you're more connected. How often do the minor league teams fake an injury to create spots?
    I know players are DLd at start of season to reamain with team till a roster spot opens but I have doubts Lester is hurt.

    That would match up with Jim Rantz's comments about 4-5 games before he'd play.

    more moves today, a trickle down effect due to the promotion of tyler robertson. Luis Perdomo up to Rochester. Dakota Watts to New Britain. AJ Achter to Ft. Myers.

    Gallant definitely deserved it based on performance. He was just held back in EST/ET because he had Tommy John a year ago.

    Well... AAA is the repository of never have beens for the Twins No surprise there... I am not even surprised that the former manager's son (27 year old Shawn Roof) is still with the team at AA instead of getting a kid from Fort Myers there or that 24 year old Liddle's nephew is in Beloit instead of some kids who are currently in E-town (like DJ Hicks for example...) But that's the Twins' way.
