Are there any minor league pitchers that have impressed/surprised you?

Tyler Austin kind of having an interesting spring so far. Even before the HR yesterday...and SSS disclaimers aside...seems more balls have been put in play, (although still not getting BB's). See or hear anything indicating a demonstratively different approach? Or just showing some general signs of improvement?

Do you think any of the under the radar bullpen guys, such as Harper, Collins, Eades, etc, will make the opening day 25?

Seems to me the Twins have a number of guys with major league experience and some past success...guys like Duda, Collins, Austin, Torreyes, etc.Do any of them have options left so the Twins could store them in Rochester for depth in case of injury?

I feel like I am late to the game with this question but her goes.Do I understand correctly that Romero will only pursue a bullpen spot going forward?If yes, why have they decided that pitching as a starter is no longer in the picture?

Yes. He answered the questions up in the main body of the original post.

Does Adam Rosales have a chance to make the club?With Sano out - it seems like he could add value through the first month at least. He has had a fantastic spring and it seems he deserves a look.

2 Questions:

1. Why does everyone assume Astudillo is a lock to go north? Am I missing something here? Dont get me wrong, I really like him. I just dont understand his "lock" status.

2. Is there any truth to the rumor you screamed and dove under a table when a foul ball came your way in the press box?

I was at the game and got to “Ask Seth” in person today at the backfields. He maintains the ball never came in the press box, but from my vantage on the first base stands it clearly did. ;)

With opening day 2 weeks away, have you heard any reports on the condition of Target Field, considering the weather conditions we have had the last 4 months?

along the same line as the previous question....Who are your guys on the "bubble" to make the 25 Man Roster? Before and after a full 5-man starter roster.

 

I think these questions were answered in previous answers.

Does Adrianza make this club, or have surgery on the shoulder that limits his hitting to one side.

Does this mean that Torreyes makes the club.

Are you worried about the lack of hitting (I was at the game Sunday), Seems like the Twins were having issues with minor league pitching. 

 

The Adrianza/Torreyes question was already answered... As for worrying about the lack of hitting, nothing to worry about here.

Thanks for all the questions, y'all!! I may do this one more time before heading back. Maybe during a spring training game or something.

I asked for your questions and you came through. It's a little intimidating to find 33 questions but I'll try to answer them all. Thank you very much for your participation...

Answers to your questions below:

-------------------------------------------------------------

Good Wednesday morning, Twins Fans! Get your questions in!

[/indent]From Sconnie: "I was at the game and got to “Ask Seth” in person today at the backfields. He maintains the ball never came in the press box, but from my vantage on the first base stands it clearly did."





[indent=1]Like I said, that's why I wish there was a good replay because it happened so fast. Ha!! Good to chat with you for a few minutes.


Thank you for all the great questions... I've got a few more days/games here in Ft. Myers before heading back. Nick Nelson will take the final week and report on all the stuff going on there.

I didn’t get a chance to ask in person, but Willie Joe Garry played like a man trying to take the next step up, he got robbed of a triple by Albee not being fleet of foot(or not hustling, it’s hard to tell, he’s huge). Does Garry have a shot at staying in with the Miracle?
