The 60-day IL doesn't necessarily get used when an injury is serious. Only if the team needs the use of that 40-man roster spot. When the 60 days are up, they then could have a roster decision to make, as to whom to DFA or whatever, in order to re-activate Garver, so I don't know if they make the move lightly, right now. Only if they want someone on the 25-man roster who isn't currently on the 40-man; that could well be a pitcher, but they also may prefer to leave room for Telis or other AAA catcher in case of a 10-day injury to someone, but not commit to that as yet.

Right, I was trying to clarify (perhaps poorly) that officially he's on the 10 day. That doesn't preclude a move to the 60 day IL in the future or that he ends up on the IL for 60 days. 

 

I interpreted Brock's post to show disappointment that a 60 day IL stint was a possibility at this point, which would certainly be disappointing and a different scenario.

Agreed, and I guess I was trying to further spoil his mood by indicating that a trip to just the 10-day wasn't an indication of good news. :)

Nothing is impossible for the one who doesn't have to do the work.

Indeed. He was right to fret about the potential of an immediate 60 day IL stint. That would certainly be bad news.

I don't know how the 60 day thing got brought up. The Twins don't even know the extent of the injury yet, so of course he's not on the 60-day IL.

 

If the Twins have to make a roster move in a month and a half and Garver is still injured, then you might see him moved to the 60-day. Not today.

Ughhhhhhhhhhhhh.

'87 & '91 were pretty nice  

 

Injuries always happen, which is why teams need depth.According to reports, they have a loaded minor league system, so this is a test for the front office on how they handle this.

We have been fortunate avoiding injuries, compared to many other teams.
I hope this is a quick healer

He also said Sano has landed and will be at the stadium by game time.Won't be in lineup.

Yes, but.

I think Sano makes the 25 man roster stronger. He'll hit more bombs than Gonzalez. For now, I'd like to see Sano DH, until Cruz's wrist heals. That would keep Marwin at third for now.
