If the Twins go to Opening Day with Gimenez and/or Park on the roster, who gets bumped?  Maybe they can put Perkins on the 60-day DL, and that would buy a spot, but what comes next (or first, if for some reason they don't put Perkins on the 60-day DL)?  Who are the one or two candidates you see bumped?  Maybe go three, in the (admittedly unlikely) case Schuck or Stubbs is on the Opening Day roster.  

 

Roster is here (though the Breslow addition and May shift to 60-day DL is not listed yet).  http://m.twins.mlb.c.../roster/40-man/

Tonkin, imo, would be "likely". It is possible they'll just cut bait on Murphy also, and have a vet type catcher or two in AAA.

My own guesses come from this set:  Boshers, Haley (returned or traded-for), Melotakis, D. Santana.

 

(1) Haley, (2) Boshers, (3) D. Santana (if an outfielder is kept), and (4) Melotakis.

Santana, Adrianza, and Tonkin are all out of options, so it any of them don't make the 25-man roster, they have to be dropped from the 40-man anyway.

 

I suspect you will get at least one drop from that group to roster Gimenez.

I missed Tonkin -- that's a good bet.  And Spycake's sound observation handles at least one more spot (they aren't keeping BOTH Danny Santana and Adrianza, I don't guess).  

 

If Tonkin is kept, I don't see them dropping both D. Santana and Adrianza, though.  So that's still just one.  If not Tonkin, who else?

The guys who can't be sent down are probably most likely (Tonkin, Adrianza, Danny, Haley). But there are also a ton of lefty relievers on the 40-man roster right now (Breslow, Boshers, Melotakis, O'Rourke, Perkins, Rogers, Rosario). I'm guessing one of them is dropped from the roster prior to the start of the season, probably either Boshers or O'Rourke.

May on the 60 (already done)

Perkins on the 60 (possible/likely)

Adrianza/Tonkin would have to be taken off 40 if they don't make team

Haley also has to clear waivers

I'm guessing Tonkin and one of Santana/Adrianaza. 

 

 

Santana and Adrianaza could both survive if they decide to start Vargas and Park both in Rochester which I would not rule out. Otherwise there is no 25 man spot left for both in my opinion. 

 

Tonkin could stay if they 60 day DL Perkins and send Chargois down to Rochester.

 

Or... decide to send Gimenez down to Rochester and go with Murphy in Minnesota... and send Chargois down to Rochester. 

 

I personally think that is too much to ask and I can't see them keeping Tonkin.

After those out-of-options players, I'd guess Haley and Perkins are the next most likely targets.

If Stuart Turner is returned to the Twins, your prediction of cutting bait on Murphy sounds very likely. No reason to have three 25-26 year old C's in AAA.

I am guessing Tonkin, followed by one of the middle infielders.Boshers is also a likely cut.Twins have lots of players at the bottom end, who will probably not be hers.I am guessing Tonkin and Boshers along with the loser of the middle infield battle. That should be enough spots.

My guess is that we'll trade murphy for cash. Are there any potential waiver additions the Twins should be monitoring with our no. 1 priority on the wire?

If we're going with the hypothetical that Perkins is NOT going on the 60-day, I don't see why Boshers or O'Rourke wouldn't be removed.

 

If the Twins have half a mind to try to sneak a Tonkin, Santana, O'Rourke or someone else trough waivers, it might be a good idea to do it now while the other teams are still making difficult roster decisions. Or, it's also possible there's no need to do any sneaking at all.

I'd Drop Buddy Boshers

 

from the  40 man

 

and possibly whoever loses out between  C's J.R.  Murphy and Chris Giminez

 

that opens up 2 spots....one of which could go to a young arm like (jay) or maybe even Byung Ho Park

 

 

 

Keep O'Rourke over Boshers....

Twins Prospects? 1 S. Gonsalves  2. N. Gordon  3. Tyler Jay

4. A. Kirilloff  5. Romero, Fernando  6. Mejia, Alberto  7. K. Stewart

8.J.T. Chargois  9. Wells, Lac. 10. D. Palka  11. Wade, LaM. 12. Nic Burdi

Ohh yeah, and absolutely Tonkin too

 

He's never been any good in the Major Leagues at ANY point.

What is really the most important point in this discussion is how many we can come up and not hurt the chances of our 103 loss team going forward.  Boshers, Tonkins, Santana, Murphy...we have an abundance of potential drops and the future will not be harmed.  I have not even listed half the potential cuts.  I just hope this gets harder in the future.

The guy that is supposed to be the starter may start the season on the DL.
