    I wouldn't be surprised if Herrmann is up for the duration of Wilkin's DL stint and a relief pitcher (Fien) goes down when Plouffe comes back.

Every team makes decisions about who stays in AA, who goes to AAA, etc. that seem arbitrary or misguided to fans like us. It's probably not arbitrary or misguided though. Could be we just aren't privy to what variables were considered.
    And how has that been working for the Twins and Chris Parmelee, Aaron Hicks, Trevor Plouffe, Ben Revere, Joe Benson, etc.?
