Usually this is a 4-6 week recovery. He will be out for the first Twins-Indians series, given that he will have to play rehab games to make up for spring training. I feel bad for the guy. Lots of very unlucky injuries during the past few years.

I'd feel bad for him, if he hadn't taken the potshot at Polanco. While he's under the knife, maybe they can remove those feathers or whatever that is in his hair.

Now add Carrasco to the pile. Keep that bug in Goodyear/Cleveland and away from Fort Myers/Minneapolis.

Kluber trade looking worse and worse by the minute. Hopefully they toss in the towel and trade Lindor now

Lindor being out of the central and out of the AL would be amazing.

Good for the Twins, but bad for me because I think he's my favorite player to watch in person.

Hmm, I wouldn’t mind if he stuck around the central and in a Twins uniform.

I think he is really annoying, only because he is good. I will never deny him of that. He always wrecks our pitching so I would be ecstatic if he would be gone. Thats just me though.

I would be inclined to agree with you, but I will wait and see if Polanco puts up another year like last year.

According to my calculations, if Clevinger was scheduled to start opening day, then he would not be pitching in the first Twins-Indians series on April 6-8.It would have been Bieber, Carrasco and Civale.Now with Carrasco's beginning the season in doubt, I will have to redo my matchups!I know, get a job...

Cleveland may trade him but there's no way they do it in division. Can you imagine the fan response in Cleveland if they traded him to us and he decided to sign a long term deal? Then proceeds to destroy them every year? That town would burn

Unfair. They cleaned up the Cuyahoga River many years ago.

I wasn’t being completely serious, because, yeah, what all you said. But dreams are a good thing. :)

In that case we'll give them Romero for Lindor and Francona. Tito can be the "Special Assistant to the Manager"

Yes. There are some guys who are annoying because they're good and they play for the other team (Thome with the White Sox), and there are some guys who are annoying because they are annoying and are doubly annoying when they are good (Pierzynski with the White Sox).
