Wow, this is an amazing trade for the Twins. It's not that Milone is anything great, but an actual MLB starting pitcher for a 4th OF who was waived by the same team? That's nuts!
Milone is an instant upgrade to Pino, Johnson, and Darnell. Unfortunately it does make the rotation a bit more crowded. I expect to see Trevor May very soon. Also remember that Nolasco is throwing bullpen sessions, so he may start a rehab assignment and be back in roughly 2 weeks. (roughly) I would not be surprised at all if Meyer doesn't see any time with the Twins.
I posted in the 'A's have interest in Fuld' topic that the notion was stupid and not going to happen. Frankly, I am happy to be wrong because the Twins just pulled off an impressive trade. Good job TR.
Also... I am very happy to see Vargas coming. I expected him to be a September call-up, but yaaaaay prospects! Unfortunately this means our OF defense will continue to be awful. You can pencil in Willingham/Nunez for LF (yuck), Santana/Parmelee for CF (neither should be there), and Arcia and a little Colabello in RF.
