Flash in the pan, a la Derrick Rodriguez.

 

Good for Anderson, but I don't think it will last.

Rodriguez's rookie performance wasn't very sustainable by the numbers, though -- low K%, low BABIP, low HR rate. He wasn't even a groundball pitcher like Nick Blackburn.

 

If anything, Anderson has been under-performing his peripherals in MLB this year. He's got a real chance to stick around for awhile.

Well, this FO already DFA'd four guys they started the year with, so he's lasted longer, and been better.....

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

Brian Dozier should have shaken off Kurt Suzuki's sign and gone with a fast ball to Eduardo Escobar.

How fast is Dozier's fastball?

San Francisco continues to be your one stop shop for all Ex-Twins players...

Today, Fernando Abad found his way on the team!

The Phillies are enamored with ex-Twins lately. First they picked up Morin and Blake Parker, and now Morrison. Hardly seems like savvy moves for a team fighting for the playoffs.

If you ever wondered where Ryan LaMarre, Lucas Duda, Pedro Florimon, Huascar Ynoa, and John Ryan Murphy are, they are with Atlanta’s AAA team, the Gwinnett Stripers.

You’re welcome. :)

I'd forgotten all about Florimon. He played well for the Phillies at a variety of positions the past couple of years before getting injured. He had a decent spring training with the Braves but has yet to be called up this year.

Magill closes it out. He, Parker, and Morin have actually all been really good the past few weeks.

Oh Danny boy...Santana hits a pair of homers off of Berrios yesterday. He’s slashing 313/331/680 over his past 30 games.

That’s the thing about mediocre or kinda bad relievers; they can trick you into belief of competency for a month or even two at a time because of the frequency in which they’re used.

The Twins actually have the promise of a solid bullpen now. It could even be good if one of Alcala or Graterol pans out in a few weeks.

If your attack appears to be going well, then you're in an ambush.

It should be noted his appearance came against the Baltimore Orioles. Or perhaps their Icelandic Summer League team. Hard to tell.

Berrios's appearance yesterday came against the Detroit Tigers. Even harder to tell. :)
