    What would make teams want to take him now when they didn't last year?
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    Interest from the WBC.

    Pitchers can be assigned to the minors for rehab for up to 30 days. That's on top of time spent on the DL before rehab starts. Plenty of time to audition someone else.

    Plus, he hasn't been that bad this year. 3.72 ERA, 110 ERA+, 1.349 WHIP - somebody would pick him up.

    I think if we sent Deduno down, he'd be eaten up on waivers fast.
    However, P. J. might make it through. I think he would.

    I don't see anyone currently in the starting rotation either at AAA or with the Twins replacing one of the current bullpen members barring injury or trading Burton/Perkins. The bullpen has been a large factor in the amount of success the Twins have had and I don't see why Gardy/TR would want to mess with what has been a very good unit.

    If one of the AAAA pitchers without options has to be sent down and doesn't clear waivers it just makes the short term starting picture clearer until the prospects arrive.

    I think Correia and Deduno are safe for the time being. After that, all three of the guys could be gone by the all-star break.

    I think we found the answer to this question:

    Twins Daily - Who Is The Odd Arm Out?

    Not that there has to be just one answer.

    I think it's safe to say Walters is next in line to lose his job.

    Okay PJ, 3 strikes and you're out. Send him through waivers since he has no options. If someone takes him, fine. Add Albers to the 40-man and let him audition. When Pelfrey is ready, send Diamond out to find himself. Trade Pelfrey at the deadline and bring back Worley.
