The Twins made room for Hermann by placing Bartlett on the DL for an ankle sprain.

Suspicious much?

What kind of deal did they make with Bartlett? Why not just cut him?

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Possibly the end of that experiment.

I could've sworn that you have to be legitimately injured to be on the DL, unlike the NFL where they'll put you on IR for no reason than to make room for somebody else.

Well there is the very real possibility that Bartlett is and has been in fact injured....

They saw some sort of value in putting him on the club as the 25th guy. It's hard to see them thinking his value in that role has changed in less than a week, so you can't see them cutting him.

Either way, he gets to keep drawing an MLB paycheck... so you can't envision Bartlett complaining about any unspoken arrangement if it does exist.

With some of those dives in the outfield it's a distinct possibility.

In the NBA its the lower leg contusion...

In any event, now Pinto is free to DH further against lefties when Kubel can sit. Hope Aaron has his running shoes on because he has a lot of area to cover.

I hadn't heard a single statement from anyone that Bartlett has been injured.

Can it be the 60-day DL, with a rehab assignment in AA?

Players are diagnosed by team doctors. As far as I know, there are no independent MLB doctors.

If Bartlett has in fact been injured, this would be similar to the Mastroianni situation at the beginning of last year.

The "Bartlett was a mistake, but he deserves a graceful exit" angle makes the Twins look better by comparison.

Yup ... I won't doubt it because I don't know ... so, in my book, not suspicious, but have to say it is convenient (not to trivialize the injury in the least)

Are you sure? That stray knock at the front door may have been Rob Antony bearing the information. ;)

According the the Twins Website Bartlett sprained his ankle sliding home in the 6th inning yesterday.

I hate it when people get hurt. Good luck to him.

I believe the full quote at the Twins official website is, "Bartlett... sprained his ankle... sliding home in the 6th inning yesterday... yeah, that's the ticket!"

Well that was the inning where Bartlett scored from 1st (after being HBP) on Colabello bases clearing double.

And it might be another reason (other than his general lack of proficiency) why Escobar pinch hit for him.

Should be interesting to see where we go next. If Willy or Arcia have to hit the DL, I'd expect Mastro to be added to 40 man and called, what do you guys think?
