I believe all teams are supposed to submit a 25-man postseason roster. The last four years Terry Ryan could have put anyone on the roster because they were out of contention. This year there is a small chance that the Twins will be competing for a championship. I am not sure of the exact specifications, but I know that disabled players can be replaced by guys in the organization not on the 25-man on August 31. They currently have Hicks, Pressly, Hughes, and Boyer on the disabled list. Santana, of course, is prohibited from postseason play. Here is my 25 that the Twins would take to New York or Toronto for the first wild card game:

 

Pitchers (12): Hughes, Gibson, Milone, Duffey, Pelfrey, O'Rourke, Cotts, Duensing, Perkins, Fien, May, Jepsen

 

Catchers (2):Suzuki, Herrmann

 

Infielders (7):Plouffe, Escobar, Dozier, Mauer, Vargas, Nuñez, Sano

 

Outfielders (5): Hunter, Buxton, Rosario, Hicks

You can use a different 25 man roster for the wild card game. So you can leave off a SP or two, and further load up on relievers (or a bench bat).

Sounds like a good way to get Arcia and Vargas up there

Career Game Thread Record: 18-6

 

Safe to say I am the key to the Twins' success
