No corresponding move, no trade appears imminent.

Leaves the 40 man at 37 if I counted right. Precursor to a trade?

Freeing up room on the 40 for potential trades is an added bonus, but this is a product of needing to make room on the active roster, and the logical choices to make room being out of options.

Also a matter of culling the dead weight from the roster.

Cron and Rosario? What was the other move?

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

Haven't seen anything announced yet, but with Buxton still out of the lineup, I'm almost positive it's him to the IL.

If they elect to look internally one more time before making a trade, add Stashak. Please don't let it be Cody Allen.

It is gonna be Cody Allen. Isn't it? 

 

That or future Twins legend, Drew Hutchinson.

No. He was DFA'd to make room for the activation of Rosario and Cron off the IL.

These seem like pretty minor moves. However, best of luck to Morin.

 

Absent any news yeah I will admit I'm worried about Buxton this time. Landing hard like that on one's chin/jaw area is not something you see often.

I was more thinking of the extra spot on the 40 man. They'll need a bullpen arm sooner than later. And probably need to see what they have in Allen before the deadline.

Buxton to 7-day concussion list as a precaution. (Dave Schwartz on Twitter.)

Here’s a rule of thumb. Don’t add players to the 40-man unless you have to. There’s now room to claim someone else’s DFA and more importantly to add major league talent.

Right, which could happen over the next couple of weeks.

Prepare for disappointment. I hope Allen does well!

I don’t think we’ll see Allen for awhile, if ever.

He has pitched all of two innings in Rochester. The front office isn’t going to put him on the 40-man for the sake of a warm body.
