    True. And I guess we'll have to see if there's any kind of boomdaddies offered. Refundable or otherwise. (I think you pay a deposit on them in Iowa.)

    If Gibson is ready to pitch, are not his innings better used in the majors?
    That is not how starters are used in the MLB. I can't think of a single case where a team implemented this idea. There has been plenty of examples where a team leaves a guy in the bullpen for awhile the year after surgery, but not after he's thrown 100 innings. The Twins did use your idea last season... in the GCL... where it is common for that type of thing on rehab stints. Also, you're overlooking the amount of guys the Twins brought in to compete for spots. Hopefully some of the **** they throw against the wall sticks and they get a nice reward. This action almost clearly tells us that Gibson will not go north with the Twins, but if there is a starter that is terrible after a month the Twins can have a short leash with them.
    Do or do not. There is no try.
