    Wishing Trevor a speedy recovery, but great to see the guy get a chance. I would have loved to watch him hear the big news

    Any idea on what to expect from him? His numbers are great in AAA, but I've seen tempered expectations on him. Is there any reason to think he could be the Chris Parmelee we all hoped we had last year after he tore up AAA?

    Good to hear. Though, I'm not sure where the playing time will come? Is there any way he or Parmalee can play 3B?

    The odds have been against Chris since before he signed a minor league contract with the Twins last year. I have no idea how he will do, but he deserves the chance as much as anybody right now and I can't wait to see what he does with it.

    Colabello will DH some, fill in for Morneau at first for a Morneau day off or a Morneau day at DH. He will also pinch hit. Escobar and Carroll are likely in the lineup now and that is good. He is not someone who needs to play every day. Having him on the roster could be highly beneficial. Replacing some pop with some pop is good, in general.

    looking at the picture, I can't help but be concerned about him swinging at pitches behind his head

    Lefty Paul Maholm is starting for the Braves, so I would not at all be surprised to see him make a start at 1B if he can get there in time tomorrow. If not, he'll be ready to pinch hit. He could be thrown into RF rather than left-handed bats Parmelee or Arcia. I would expect Escobar and Carroll to play 3B most of the time. Colabello can DH some in the AL games.

    It's possible he goes on the 7-Day DL. The timing of Colabello finding out tells me that it is Plouffe related, though it could be a situation where they were going to send Parmelee or Arcia down.

    How long is Hicks' leash? He's hitting .172 in May.

    He's hit 5 home runs across two days. Those two days seem to have bought him a lot of leeway....especially for a rookie with no time at AAA.

    Congrats to Colabello--great story!

    These are the kinds of stories that make enduring the last few years of Twins baseball worthwhile. Looking forward to seeing Colabello the bigs. And to the re-appearance of Sam Deduno.

    Since Atlanta is Delta's main hub, there is actually a direct flight from Allentown, PA (where the Wings played last night) to ATL. It left at 6:15 this morning, and will arrive at 8:19. Given that Seth broke this at 1 AM Eastern, I'm assuming Colabello would have plenty of time to make it to the airport for that flight.

    I imagine him or Doumit get a lot of time on RF with Arcia being most in trouble.

    No doubt... Atlanta is pretty easy to fly to.

    I hope he is in the lineup today. With a portsider on the mound it would seem to fit. I hope he can provide a little inspiration.
