After Wednesday's game against in Cincinnati, the Minnesota Twins sent Kennys Vargas to Chattanooga. 

 

 

After the game, manager Paul Molitor addressed the media on the decision to send Vargas to AA:

 

 

 

The Twins did not announce a corresponding roster move and will do so tomorrow but it could open the door for either a Miguel Sano or Oswaldo Arcia promotion. 

 

UPDATE: Per Kevin Oklobzija of the Democrat & Chronicle, Aaron Hicks and Oswaldo Arcia are getting on the team bus, heading towards Lehigh Valley.

 

 

Miguel Sano is NOT in the Chattanooga Lookouts lineup tonight. I think we have our answer.

Maybe I'm missing something, but why AA? He was raking in AAA earlier this earlier.

 

EDIT: Apparently, Sano is not in the lineup for AA Chattanooga. I think he's coming up!!

Sending him to AA pretty much says what the next move is... but Sano not being in the lineup says a lot too, unless he's going up to AAA and Arcia or something is moving up?

Well, how about that.

Big demotion for Kennys

In truth, I expect D, Santana is not far behind. Maybe only as far as Rochester.

They need defense in CF for the KC series and a DH bat.

Since Vargas is going to Chattanooga, it probably means a Miguel Sano, Adam Brett Walker or Max Kepler promotion. If Vargas was going to Rochester, THAT would probably mean a Waldo promotion.

Either Sano or Kepler -- Walker isn't on the 40-man roster.

Well, if Sano is indeed on his way, there's the bat; although not sure if he'll perform immediately. And Hicks up would be CF defense

A lot depends on whether Robinson goes to the DL.

AA has already had all star break. He doesn't need a break. He needs to play.

Arcia has an OPS of .584 in Rochester.Hit a 3 run HR yesterday, but those were his only RBI in the last 10 days where he has a BA of .211. 

 

I hope it is not him.

Only 39 currently on the 40-man roster. I don't think it is Walker, but he could be added.

Hicks may be most likely to replace Robinson and Sano to replace Vargas.

I can't believe nobody said what the move is going to be already. I hate to say it Aaron Hicks will just be coming off the DL and activated. Dreams of Sano turn into the same old Hicks who is not worthy of being on the team.

With Wheeler being released with the Berrios call up and Robinson being hurt today....my guesses:

 

Robinson to the DL

Hicks to the Twins

Arcia to the Twins

Sano to AAA

Kepler to AAA

I assume that 40th spot is for ESan
