    Still think that if fridays game had been at target field gibson would have gotten the call.

    Daniel Ortiz has really been good this season.

    Has anyone here santana play? What he like in the field? I know he has a lot of errors but I'm looking to know if anyone has seen him play.

    111 pitches? Do they want his arm to fall off? Isn't 100 a magic number in Gardy's book?

    Good morning Seth, What are your thoughts on moving Morales up to AA? Keep him at F.M. another month or so to finish building his confidence or move him soon?

    I wonder about the 111 pitches also.

    However, keeping him in the minors leads to much less stressful innings. Lineups like the Tigers are going to put much greater stress on an arm coming off surgery. All innings and all pitches are not equivalent.

    So he throws softer in the minors? Three of four great starts, if it is about consistency, he will be up soon......

    I'd move him soon. It's time. At that time, Buxton to Ft. Myers.

    Imo Morales is the type of prospect that moves up when Buxton and/or Walker are promoted. He is only 24 and he's having a nice season but this is his 4th season at Ft Myers. Maybe he has some upside but I see a Wilkin Ramirez type career in his future.

    Maybe one, possibly two, more starts. No worries. Just a matter of time.

    Yes, he has. He's little, but he can hit. Very solid ballplayer!

    agree....that Super 2 date is getting closer/easier to avoid. These xtra starts never had anything to do with performance.
    Agree that promotion to Morales is based on Buxton's but New Brit could use a CF as they had to take 2 OFs off the street to fill the roster.

    Santana and Beresford are impressive. We could be looking at them at some point next year in a Twins uniform.

    I don't believe that Gibson's call-up is related to the Super 2 date.

    I also don't believe Morales and Buxton are directly tied. Buxton's been playing himself into staying in Cedar Rapids longer. Morales should move up soon. Goncalves can certainly take CF in Ft. Myers for awhile. Or JD Williams could move up. Or Jon Murphy could play there. Or Murphy could go to Cedar Rapids and Adam Walker should move up (he will soon too).

    Beresford is very underrated because he doesn't hit for any power, but he's great defensively.

    Santana has all the tools, but he lacks defensive consistency. No one in the Twins system has more errors, and that includes Sano or Harrison. He also started out slowly.

    So why is Gibson not up, then?

    Do you think there are five guys better than him? Do you think he is not mentally ready?
    Lighten up Francis....

    Cuz he's a top prospect and they need to do the right things for his development. People think the inconsistency thing is just an excuse but the numbers say that is very true. He's now been good 3 out of 4 so he's about there.

    No, I don't think there are five better than him, necessarily.

    As I've said many times, the money (arbitration and especially free agency) should be an issue for the twins and all other teams. The Twins have shown time and again that those things don't factor in.

    Gibson Mismanaged?

    I understand that Gibson, because of injury history, will be throwing limited innings this year. If so, why in the devil are they allowing him to throw all these innings and, specifically, 114 pitches in a meaningless game for Rochester?

    I guess, like Nick said yesterday, I don't understand why it would be so detrimental to him to let him work on his consistency in the majors?
    I would understand if he werent one of the 5 best options, then you can justify making him work on that at AAA, but in this case why not let him work on it in the MLB, so he is acclimated by the time 2014 rolls around?
