Per Mr. Nygaard:
The Red Wings welcome RP Michael Tonkin (outrighted) and SS Engelb Vielma (from AA). They released 1B/OF Ben Paulsen. The Lookouts add OF Ryan Strausborger (activated and sent from AAA) and 3B TJ White (activated). Fort Myers adds OF Tanner English from Chattanooga and releases P Chris Anderson. Cedar Rapids activated RP Zach Tillery.
Although I have been an outspoken fan of Vielma for over three years, can someone explain why he got the promotion over Gordon?I am a 100% fan of splitting them up in different levels so they can both play SS so one can decide if they are MLB short stops or 2B men, but I am somewhat surprised.
I was very wrong about Paulsen based on his preseason results.
Please correct me, but wasn't Tanner English on some "top Twins prospects" lists?
I would really like to hear reactions to these moves as these represent more information into the new Front Office
