Why must they do this to TD? Does the front office not understand the level of snark and condemnation this will bring to our site?! Thad, there are children reading this site!!!!

This isn't exactly a ringing endorsement of the awesome system in terms of providing any help......

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

Maybe they’re just bringing him in to scout Iglesias, Garrett and Stephenson.

Or even better, he’s got incriminating photos on the Reds GM.

Only 28 with SOME past success and Rochester doesn't look to be providing any LH BP arms unless Smeltzer or Thorpe get a shot. And I'd rather they stay in the rotation for now.

Meh, why not take a flier.

Why not promote someone from AA or A+? "only 28?"

Absolutely agree.

"Only 28", as opposed to say 31, and having had some success at the ML level and just young enough to find that success again vs the begining of possible velocity decline, etc.

I don't think its a whole lot to be hopeful or upset. Just a flier. Mid year promotions across the board should be happening soon.

I'm going to hesitantly agree. It looked like when he was successful Krol was throwing 94-95 but more recent showings were more 92-93. Recently the Twins have had some success with velocity gains, so if they can find that missing 2 MPH maybe they turn back the clock.

 

And by turn back the clock, I mean that one single year, 2016. Don't turn it back too far because he also stunk before that when he pitched out of the Tigers bullpen.
