Burdi? Fascinating. I'd think they'd want that golden arm to rest, then be ready to be in MN half way through next year when he tears through AA and AAA.......
I gotta trust that the Twins know what they're doing with Burdi, he's not like a typical overused college starter. And his pitching motion isn't all that violent. The prospect of pitching 5-10 innings or so and facing a bunch of Top 100 prospects is too much to pass up. Assuming Burdi does well here, he's the one guy from this group that can have much chance for a first half of the season impact for the Twins in 2015.
I'm still scratching my head about Dustin Morse tweeting the official roster announcement and leaving Burdi's name off of his tweet. It seems like one hand isn't aware of what the other hand was doing.
Joyous, fact-based and tireless Twins fan for 40+ years, who unfortunately has been characterized as-
"forcing Twins fans to endure more bitter, baseless, and tiresome cheap shots about the Twins FO."
