I expect Gonsalves, Romero and Littell to pitch for the Twins at some point this year, if there are injuries.

I'd agree with that. I wonder who gets the first shot though, it might be Aaron Slegers.

Eades is probably the worst of these but first in line...Romero is probably the best of those 4 but he will probably be the last one called up...

Eades isn’t on the 40-man, though ... My guess is that he won’t be up at all unless/until that changes.

SMH, I meant to type Slegers... Not sure where that Eades thing came from...

Gonsalves is doing Gonsalves things in AA.

 

3-0 with a 1.77 ERA, 11.1 K/9 and just 4.9 H/9

 

The negatives are the walks and the pitches per inning being too high so far.

In 5 starts for Rochester, Gonsalves has been very good.

 

In AAA, he's 4-1 with a 2.39 ERA, 5.5 H/9, 0.7 HR/9, 4.4 BB/9, 10.9 K/9

 

He just does not give up hits.

I have been most impressed with his K rate this year. I really did not envision Gonsalves striking out so many at AAA. Maybe I have not been high enough out Gonsalves in the past as I saw him as a 3-4 rotation piece. Is he a 2? Exciting stuff fo sho!

Stephen Gonsalves is being called up and will start Monday for the Twins :)

 

Between AA and AAA, his numbers are:

 

12-3, 2.76 ERA in 120.2 innings, 5.7 H/9, 0.6 HR/9, 4.8 BB/9, and 9.0 K/9.

 

It will be interesting to see how his pitching style translates. Hopefully he doesn't nibble around the edge of the zone and rely on guys to chase.
