Waldrop looks like by the numbers to be pitching better. We will see if it continues up here. For sure he get another shot at major league hitters on July 1 unless the Twins find a proven pitcher..

I think this will be good for Manship. I think he's going back to Rochester to be a starter. He'll be better as a starter and I fully expect him to be back with the big club in the future. He is a very talented young man.

Waldrop had struck out five of 58 batters in Rochester. Here's hoping he can get a lot of ground balls.

Bert told me today that getting the right sink is all about the arm angle. Hopefully Waldrop has lots of arm angle.

Not a Manship fan. Unless the starting staff goes to seed, he really isn't right for a role in the Twins' bullpen. They have a long man (Swarzak) and Manship wasn't a fit to pitch in high leverage late innings. Waldrop will be a middle to setup guy and hopefully will get enough ground balls to make up for his lack of ability to miss bats. I have pictured Waldrop as a Guerrier type and his comeback from adversity is a good story.

Manship has been ineffective in the majors in 4 seasons. (And the last time he was an above average pitcher was in Fort Myers in 2008.) Will be out of options next season, which means happy trails. I wonder if he is the guy going to the Pirates. Not much of a loss for the Twins.

Pitched well in some spot starts a few years ago. Got a critical win at the end of the season to keep the Twins in the playoffs. Was hurt most of the year last year but still was part of the no-hitter at Rochester. Good numbers in Spring Training, good numbers in AAA, and good numbers when he was first pulled up. I think he just needs a little more work to get back the way he was a couple of years ago.

I was waiting for this move to happen at some point. I think Manship would have been gone earlier if Slama and Oliveros were healthy

I was hoping that the PTBNL would be Nick Blackburn. Is there any chance a team would take him if the Twins chipped in 3/4 of his salary for this season and next year?

Hopefully thats the last we see of Manship. I just think he's a AAAA player.

But how will the team know if they have a good long reliever without Blackburn?

If he truly is a AAAA player then he def has a spot on this current Twins team unfortunately :/

Manship, Gray, and Swarzak need to be out of the organization. This is clear.

I pointed this out in the offseason, but whatever.

What's your beef with Swarzak? He's perfectly suitable in his current role.
