Following Thursday's afternoon game in Cleveland, the Minnesota Twins optioned SS Pedro Florimon and OF/C Chris Herrmann... other roster adds coming.

My guess a couple more relief pitchers--- can never have too much pitching.

. . . and there was much rejoicing in Twins Territory!

At least, until we find out who is replacing them . . .

The smart guess has to be Hicks and Arcia......but brass has been known to surprise us!

New market inefficiency....25 man roster with 25 pitchers. Everyone can pitch, everyone can play anywhere!! Roster flexibility baby!!

Official roster lists 1 outfielder(Kubel) and three shortstops(Escobar, Santana, Nunez).

That has to be some sort of a record.

All from the team that supposedly had such a surplus of outfielders over the past few years.

While today's moves with Florimon and Herrmann make a ton of sense, that still leaves 13 pitchers on the roster barring any more demotions. Five relivers were used today to get 11 outs. I think it was mentioned on another thread, but isn't there anyone in the organization that can show Gardy these numbers and make him realize he's using his bullpen inefficiently, and at the cost of a competent bat at the end of his bench?

Or a competent bat at the front of the bench.

I wonder if Danny Santana's last couple of games were enough to keep him on the roster and cost Florimon his spot? Earlier in the week it seemed like a forgone conclusion that Santana was gone once the team needed to make a move.

I'm glad Santana is still here - he's a blast to watch - that kid is FAST!

I think what Florimon meant to says was that he was surprised it took them this long into the season to make the move.

Maybe he hasn't seen his offensive numbers
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Does someone have to be put on the AAA roster in place of Raley?

So they lost Brooks Raley in the Guerrier deal. Easy come, easy go, I guess.

Hicks is expected to take one of two spots. Nunez is already here, with Fuld going on the 7-day concussion DL. The other guy is probably Arcia, if his sore wrist is better in the morning.

What if Arcia is still not ready? Parmalee?

That's a tough one to answer because Nunez came up. However, I do think Santana's play had something to do with it because he's been dynamite since his call up. You cant send someone down who's playing the way he is.

I really like Santana's skill set. He hits the ball hard, runs incredibly fast, and has a strong arm at SS. As long as he maintains decent numbers at the plate and is fairly reliable defensively, he could be a huge asset for this team.

Too bad it's not an inter-league road series. They could have gone with 17/8 instead of 16/9.
