He's only 35! Plenty of time to make the original signing worth it.

Well thanks a lot for that.
Now I need to dig out my Men In Black memory eraser and rid this from my mind again.

Very thin bench for position players. And they'll have to DFA somebody - roster limit is 25.

The best pitcher is on the IL! Not much pitching there....

It's been a fun year so far, GO Twins.

I know he never made the majors for the Twins, but Nick Anderson is solidly "ex-Twins org", and is now in the pen of a contender (Tampa).

Dereck Rodriguez (SF) is in this group too.

As is Nick Burdi (Pirates 60-day DL).

I'm fine with not counting Steve Pearce, though. :)

Yup, Pressly is on the DL but should be back soon.

Neshek too, and not so soon... plus

David Hale

Juan Graterol

From what I can see, both Hale and Graterol are on the Injured List. Honestly, I had forgotten that Hale had pitched for the Twins.

Yup, I meant that post to mean all 4 guys were ex-Twins on MLB ILs. Sorry if I wasn't clear!

How could anyone forget Hale's lone Twins appearance? 3 IP, 4 runs in relief of Phil Hughes's last start ever, a 15-9 loss at home to the Reds. :)

Heck, FSN provided a nice flashback last night during the game showing highlights of a game in which the Twins beat the Red Sox at Fenway...and the pitchers that night were Deduno, Fien, and Perkins.

 

Yikes!

Kinda tasteless putting the picture up of him about to have his leg broken (not you, whoever wrote that tweet).

Austin can probably hang around Triple A the rest of the year and find a permanent gig next year with 26-man rosters.

Every team probably has 5 guys saying, "yeah, I can be that 26th man." Next year about this time, 4 of them will be agitating for the union to push for 27 paychecks.

Blake Parker's Philly career is off to a good start.

 

3 IP, 2 H, 0 BB, 6 K

 

Two of those three innings were against the White Sox, however, so there's an asterisk there. Hold your tickets, we're not paying off until there's been a review of the tape.

Parker is like Belisle. He is a good pitcher except when he is not. Parker had 5 games of multiple runs. 6 multi hit games where he gave up one run or less. Given time, it will happen iin Phily.

Kinda like an old-timers game. Dozier's just about there anyway.

Meanwhile, Danny Santana keeps playing surprisingly well for Texas, If anything, his stats have gotten better in the past month.He homered again yesterday (his 17th of the year) and now is batting .325 with 49 RBI. Pretty darn impressive. He's also been pretty versatile, playing outfield and infield, with another stint at 1st base yesterday.
