And while we are at it, why would the Twins organization have any interest in a player like Taylor Motter?I get that a major league roster needs bodies, but what possible value does he serve?Motter is a career .196 hitter in almost 400 plate appearances.Motter was hitting .167 in Rochester.
This is the best we have available in our minor league system?
If you look at our AAA roster, it is pathetic.
Nick Buss 31 years old.239 average649 OBS
Chris Carter31 years old189 average 757 OPS
Jermaine Curtis30 years old200 average 605 OPS
Tyler Featherstone28 years old168 average548 OPS
Taylor MOtter (now up with the big leagues)167 average 565 OPS
James Ramsey28 years old240 average572 OPS
Leonardo Regginatto28 years old 197 average530 OPS
Cameron Rupp29 years old171 average543 OPS
Brock Strassi28 years old211 average 632 OPS
Kennys Vargas 27 years old217 average 640 OPS
Bobby Wilson 35 years old125 average332 OPS(NO WONDER HE WAS CALLED UP WITH SO MUCH SUCCESS).
Our AAA affililate has exactly 6 position players 25 years of age or younger:Jake Cave, Nick Gordon, Zach Granite, Jimmy Kerrigan, Sean Miller, and Lamonte Wade.(Other than Sano and Buxton).
The entire team has 3 players with at least a 250 batting average and 700 OPS:Jake Cave, Willians Astudillo, and Wynston Sawyer.
The entire roster has one young prospect in Gordon a marginal prospect in Wade, and a fringe guy like Granite. Almost the entire roster should be released, but then they would not field a AAA team.This is really a major problem for this team and the current FO bears a lot of responsibility for this debacle.
