Both are disappointing. I hope both come to resolution soon.

Couldn't Berardino have at least thrown us a bone on Sano's rehab progress?

2-3 months post op he can start lightly throwing a ball. About the only news you would have is range of motion reports and the no news is good news variety.

IIRC Rosario was said to have tested positive for [COLOR=black][FONT="]benzoylecgonine. [/FONT][/COLOR]Did anyone ever ask if Rosario ever drank the Coca Tea? That, or his issue could be diabetes.

This has probably already been covered somewhere, but has Rosario's suspension started? Is there some rule that he has to report before his 50 games start accruing? I hope not...

I was confused about that, too, Zephrin.

I know he could have partaken in regular Spring Training even though he was supposed to start his suspension when the season started.

But would he be allowed to participate in extended Spring Training? Wouldn't the Twins have had to assign him to a minor league team and then have him be suspended for their first 50 games (or be suspended from the first 50 games of the Rock Cats since that was his last team)??

And yet it seemed curious that Berardino would phrase it the way he did.

It started with Opening Day (Thursday).

Exactly. We know so little about these players' lives (especially those from Latin America) that it could be just about anything.

Am I just a 'nervous nellie' for being concerned about Buxton's injury?
I can't find the article, but I could have sworn it was initially reported that he would miss about a week.
It's now been almost a month, and he's still not even swinging a bat! And now I'm hearing his return could be as late as May?
I hope this is still just a minor injury and the team is just being super cautious with their top prospect, but with the Sano injury I can't help but be nervous that it might be something more serious.
If both our top prospects end up losing huge chunks of development time, that is going to be a tough pill to swallow.

Did he say which Wednesday? Sorry, I just couldn't resist.

I wasn't going to touch that one with a 10 foot pole. I figured either you or Snepp were on it with your own particular brands of Google-Fu. Well played.

Hopefully by May we will forget about Buxton's injury. This organization needs some good news though. Sano is out for the year, Buxton is having injury issues, Rosario is having issues. The free agent starting pitchers are as bad as anyone could imagine they could have been. Glen Perkins has a 10.80 ERA. Our bullpen has been overused already.

Speculation is nasty stuff. I tried it in College but didn't inhale and still felt light headed, still do actually.

May all our prospects be All Stars and the beer be free.

As Halsey Hall indicated, Rosario has been on camp since last week and playing in EST games. Based on what LEN3 wrote today, he will report in New Britain around 5/25 and play 2B and OF.

That about closes the loop.

Does no one find this odd that the sports media has not reported on this development? Is there some kind of "hands off" handshake agreement to leave the kid alone for now?

I don't think he's played yet. My buddy talked to him, says he's skinny as a rail, and hadn't thrown a ball since before spring training, where ever he played this winter.

The plot thickens. Only one quote from the Twins regarding Rosario's return....per the article cited above:

[COLOR=#000000]"'His weight has never fluctuated,' Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said.[/COLOR]"

That's all that he'd give you, Mike Berardino? Really?
