Oddly it looks like the press conference is no longer happening. Anything to worry about here? Seems very odd to schedule if any potential hiccups remained..

Yeah that's weird - the Twins just removed the video. No idea what's up with that....

Darren Wolfson says MLB Network is now "loosely" planning on a 2PM Central press conference - no indication that anything is up, just that the timing of the press conference is "fluid."

Maybe Pohlad just found out about this signing today, and isn’t happy about it? :)

It's official, but still haven't heard what the corresponding 40-man roster move is.

Doogie has chimed in about the 40-man spot (Twitter is blocked at work, so I can't embed it here). When asked if it was Harper, Doogie responded:

 

"No official announcement yet. A pitcher makes the most sense, and he is atop the logical list."

I’m assuming that the Twins might be discussing a trade involving 1 or more guys on the 40 man? Hence the delay? Because if not, it’s almost certainly Ryne Harper who is being left off the team.

Because the signings of Bailey and Hill have still not been made official, I think they have an open spot on the 40-man.

Which means they have 2 players to remove before Bailey and Hill can be announced.
