Questions

Did the Twins do anything with the $500k they traded for earlier this year?

What’s their budget for this year?

Are they being linked to anyone.

So far, they've done nothing with the money they traded for this year, at least nothing has been reported.

 

I thought Fangraphs had a list of July 2 prospects, but I only see 6 players, so I asked if that was right in today's chat. I'll let you know.

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

The big name connected to the Twins for the upcoming signing period is Dominican CF Enmanuel Rodriguez. MLB.com ranks him eighth in the class and compares him to a young Eddie Rosario with "the potential to have above-average tools across the board." Batting practice video linked here if you want to check out his swing.

Is anyone aware if 2019 DSL rosters have been announced? MILB & BA rosters I believe have not been updated as of yet and season scheduled to start Saturday.

I've got bad news: you didn't make the team.

Try again next year!

They will be announced sometime after the draft.

Not surprising. My bat has slowed considerably over the years and I absolutely butcher the Spanish language.

Young Eddie Rosario could hit any ball within half a foot of the strike zone over the fence. Can E-Rod do that?

I think either the "scissor snipping" finger motion, or dragging a finger across the throat would work in cases of language barrier.

I’m kind of excited about the DSL Twins. If I remember correctly, last year they had numerous players with huge OPS numbers and a catcher who stole home!

I understand all the the caveats, but it will be fun.
