Hendriks and Morneau to DL, most likely.

At this point, almost any possible callup would feel like a good thing.

both have played well and have earned a shot. It would be nice to see someone come up and really make an impact. Earn a spot and force their way into the everyday lineup.

So where does Dozier get his first start. SS on a day where we give Carrol the day off or 2b, 3b?

The idea of Dozier or Carroll starting at 3B is just crazy to me... I'd guess Dozier at SS and Carroll at 2B primarily with Casilla as the utility guy. Also wouldn't be surprised if all three of them (Carroll, Casilla and Dozier) play two out of every three games.

Maybe... Other than the fact that Lexi has been the best Twins' IF based on a couple different measures and his bat has been better than Carroll's. I can see a rotation of sorts, but I'd rather see Dozier at SS, Lexi at 2B 2/3 days with Carroll filling in on one or the other spot, or at third the third day. He is 38. No future with the Twins, let's play the ones who do have a future.

Casilla's batting average has been better than Carroll's, but Carroll's on base percentage has been better.

I'm pretty sure Carroll will be around next year. It's hard to say the same about Casilla. If you're talking long-term future... well, who really knows...

Time for Maloney and.Gray to go also. Slama has definitely earned a shot, probably Manship too.

Gray has an era of 2.38. Why not keep him at least until he gets to 2.39?

Why Gray? He has the best ERA on the team right now, 2nd to Burton in Batting avg against and H/9, 2nd to Duensing in HR/9. The ONLY thing he seems to be struggling with is that he's walking too many guys, but they don't seem to be coming around to score. Right now, I'd keep him over pretty much everyone in the bullpen other than Burton. Disclaimer: Stats haven't been updated to include tonight's game

At 2.38, he STILL has the best ERA on the team.

Gray gave up a run tonight -- which raised his era to 2.38. He has now given up 3 runs in 11.1 innings pitched.

Maloney also gave up a run tonight -- which raised his era to 8.18. He has now given up 10 runs in 11 innings pitched.

Proud to say that I called these moves. I think Carroll goes to a utility role with Casilla staying in the lineup. I would expect Carroll to get consistent time at 2nd, short and 3rd.
