LaMarre will be headed to AAA and the Twins haven't decided who will be coming up. They might not play a game this weekend, so they may not need a pitcher, but I would assume Phil Hughes will be up as the 5th starter eventually. It seems they want to keep the 8 man bullpen together.

I predict Hughes lucks his way through a start or two and engenders enough confidence that we are forced to endure a half dozen train wrecks before we finally see him cut.

This seems like an odd move with the game being delayed today, I wonder if a different move than we all think is coming, seems like it might be hard to move forward with a 3 man bench

Yup, we sign FA and pay big bucks to win games, and then we pay Hughes big bucks to lose them. Something is definitely amiss!

They aren't playing tonight or tomorrow and Sunday looks doubtful so I'm not sure why the move is being made right now. 

 

I'm not particularly a LaMarre believer but Kinley is the guy that needs to go. A wasted 25 man spot is a big deal, especially if they're going to carry 13 pitchers and leave the bench shorthanded.

I'd assume that if they planned on doing it anyway, they probably save a couple thousand dollars by doing it now.

Not sure if this happens often in baseball, with no salary cap, but you see it often in the NHL, as the cap is calculated daily.

Already basically not using two pitchers. Let’s bring up another!

Brilliant!!

I’m sorry, but this is poor roster management. Falvine: this statement is directed at you.

Expect if the Twins play Sunday it will be two games, so they are probably planning to bring up a pitcher or two.  

It still could be something we do not know, so this discussion may be moot.

There hasn't been much reason to rag on Falvine thus far and I've muted my own criticism and giving great latitude towards benefit of the doubt.

 

But this move particularly is definitely Terry/Gardy level head-scratchingly-worthy.

Why do I get the feeling they are going to make a 40-man roster move and add Kennys Vargas?Because, you know...Puerto Rico.

 

I would be so ticked.

Honestly, I assumed the only move we'd hear about today was a Hildenberger demotion.

My guess? This was the move to clear a spot for a SP if they had needed one. Granite would/will be recalled since LaMarre can't be for what, 10 days barring an injury replacement?

FWIW the Twins can clear a 40-man spot by moving E. Santana to the 60 day DL retroactively, so the Vargas playing at home hypothesis still can be in play.

 

Not sure why they would need yet another pitcher when they will not be playing due to weather and travel for a while...

The more I think about this move, the less it makes sense. The Twins probably aren't going to play until Tuesday in Puerto Rico with the current weather. I don't see why LaMarre needed to go down to AAA when our next game is probably happening in 4 days?
