    After dipping a bit for a half dozen games or so, Beresford seems back in form again, hitting .316 over his last five games (and that includes an 0-3 night last night). On Sunday, his second inning RBI single drove in the only run of the Red Wings' 1-0 win. Beresford had a pair of hits both Friday and Saturday.

    For the season, across his time in AA and AAA, Beresford has a slash line of .304/.365/.340/.705 with 33 RBI and 9 stolen bases, without being caught stealing all year.

    The Red Wings have appeared to be doing all they can to avoid being in the playoffs the past week or two, but heading in to the final weekend of the year, Rochester is just half a game out of the wild card spot.

    It doesn't look like anyone could blame Beresford for the Wings' August swoon, though. In his last 10 games, James is hitting .342 and has four multi-hit games.

    Another example of James and his playing tough when the game gets tough, 4 hits from 5 at bats with a double and as usual finesse with the glove at 2nd.

    Good win by Rochester, hope they can keep going

    Indeed, James got off to a fantastic post-season start, with 4 hits in 5 ABs, including a double, an RBI and a pair of runs scored. Five Red Wings had multiple hits in the game. Hope they can keep up the good work and go deep in the AAA playoffs.

    Beresford has re-signed with the Twins with an invite to Major League camp. If the Twins don't add him to the 40 man roster, I guess he could be picked up by someone else in the Rule 5 draft, but that would seem unlikely, to me.

    Honestly, there's a part of me that thinks he might have had a better shot at a Big League call-up with another organization, but hopefully, he'll add some muscle and get off to a strong start in Ft Myers in March.

    I would certainly protect him, in case there is some team who wants a utility infielder for 2014. Pedro Florimon and Eduardo Escobar are not true locks to maintain legit MLB status.

    When looking at the rule 5, I think one has to place top prospects and/or guys one could see joining the team in the next season. The latter might very well apply to Beresford.

    Remember that they also have Danny Santana already on the 40 man. Combined with Dozier, the Florimonster and Escobar is quite a bit on the roster already. Does anyone know how many MI most teams carry on their 40 man?

    I understand that, I just don't like the risk. Relievers and utility players are the ones seemingly most in danger. I would rather risk Darnell and Dean.
