    I think Gibson and Meyer are in a different category than the plethora of candidates who will be in Rochester, or are already there. May might also work his way into top prospect status, as well. I have stated from the time Gibson was sent down that his performance would determine when he was recalled. When he proves he's ready, he should be on the Twins' roster. Conservatively, he may need one more start at Rochester to show he can bounce back from a long outing and show that he has the desired consistency.

    Hernandez is an interesting case. He pitched in relief in spring training and hasn't yet exceeded five innings. He's been effective against lefthanders, but hasn't had much success at all against RH hitters. The Twins could use an effective LH specialist and currently they have only Duensing from the left side (not counting Perkins).

    Hernandez should hang around for a day or two, depending on who is called up...but the next start should by by DeVries with Gibson in the wings. Hernandez should stay in the Rochester rotation and get another shot, because he is elft-handed. At worse, he can be a potential longman.

    Now Casey Fien, who has options. Time to bring Tim Wood up for a looksee, and then if Wood doesn't pan out, take him of the 40-man and give a look to Perez.

    Does anyone cry out for the return of Liam?

    I don't see how he's an upgrade over Liam Hendriks.

    I'd add Diamond and Worley to that mix.... And other than HR/9 and GB%, DeVries' peripherals were better than Diamond's last season.

    Wood will not be a Twin any time soon. He is going to the AAA DL with further shoulder issues

    He's got no chance as a starter and we have plenty of long relief options that are much better. At best, he's a LOOGY. Hernandez could probably do whatever Tyler Robertson was supposed to.

    My feeling is, Gibson is a homegrown Twin, that was drafted and developed by the Twin's organization. Why should a anybody with less than a year in the organization get the next start. It's a no brainer, they both started last night and Gibson could easily replace Pedro and be on his rest schedule. Because of injury, they took a chance on Arcia and he has proved that sometimes young players deserve a shot, though Hicks has been the opposite. My main concern is that it doesn't send a very good message to future Twin's prospects. Nobody held a gun to Kyle Gibson's head demanding he sign with us. It is time we reward him for doing so.
