Thanks guys.

There is a link to it on the top blue ribbon on the front page (Roster and Payroll).

Bard's inability to stay healthy (so far) makes me wonder if the Twins will even try him in the rotation next spring. (They probably will and should... but jeepers.)

Yup, Jeremy, this is great stuff... Brock, I think that this link needs to be prominently displayed on the front page so people can easily find it and reference it.


It is, though it's not really apparent at first glance. If you go to the home page, the submenu (the blue one) has an item "Roster & Payroll". That takes you directly to the page.

This is incredibly helpful for wannabe GM-ing.

The New Twins Daily format is cutting off portions of this spreadsheet on the right.

At the bottom of each table do you have a scroll bar?

There's no actual scroll bar, but I did try scrolling using my mouse function and it did scroll... though it's not very functional without the actual scroll bar because if I scroll too hard (mouse gesture on iMacs) it thinks I'm scrolling back to the previous web page. Having a wide screen and stretching the browser to include the whole spread sheet was best, but that's no longer an option they tell me.

I will message Brock about that...

Updates reflect the roster change. Salary update (change due to rounding).

Also, you can see a little of what I'm going to do stats-wise on the GCL pitchers.

It is:

WHIP; G/GS; IP (*denotes career high)

Anderlin Mejia has been moved from GCL to Fort Myers Miracle, although to date he hasn't played yet.

One note about Carson: He didn't spend enough time on an optional assignment for this to count as an option year.

How much time is the breaking point?

MiLB website didn't pick this up, but BaseballAmerica did.

For New Britain, Joe Benson is on the 7-day DL. He had surgery on his leg, probably ending his season.

20 days in the minors on assignment to count as an option year.

Benson moved to the DL. (Thanks sbknudson.)

Vasquez selected (pro-rated 76K) and Walters activated from the 60-day DL. The Twins now have one open spot on the 40-man.

The GCL roster is undergoing its off-season changes.

The hitters now have "potential 2013 destinations" along with a stat package. The stat package contains 2012 OPS; OPS vs left / ABs vs left; OPS vs right / ABs vs right.

The pitchers are broken into guys I think will get an opportunity to start vs guys that I think will stay in the bullpen. Of course, that changes an awful lot, so who really knows...

In the next week (hopefully), all the six-year (minor-league FAs) will be put into their own table. That list isn't the official list (and it won't be until MLB releases their list).

As always, a work in progress!

Escobar and Perdomo will join the team tomorrow. They appear to be the only additional September call-ups.

Escobar spent a majority of his season with the White Sox. Perdomo had his contract selected at the end of July. He spent the last 18 days with the Red Wings, so this call-up negates this year's "optional assignment". (He'll have two left going into next year.)

If there are no additional roster moves, the Twins 2012 team payroll will close at $98,169,100.

The call-up for Escobar and Perdomo will make them each an additional $70,800 in 2012... not a bad month of September.

First roster moves in a couple of weeks:

Twins promote Herrmann (pro-rated minimum), activate Span and send DeVries to the D.L.

Undergoing some "off-season" changes. You can now find that guys that are on the 40-man - but not with the Twins - together. There is also a tentative group of players who appear to be headed towards minor league free agency.
