Who will be added today? (40 man roster decisions)
Posted 20 November 2012 - 08:15 AM
1.) There aren't eight players that NEED to be added.
2.) leaving the roster at 38 or 39 allows them to make a Rule 5 pick or two.
3.) leaves room for free agent signings between now and the December 6 Rule 5 draft.
For the Offseason GM Handbook, I wrote about the 40 man roster decisions. I ranked the players in terms of likelihood (in my opinion) of being added:
1.) Aaron Hicks, 2.) Kyle Gibson, 3.) Danny Santana, 4.) BJ Hermsen, 5.) Michael Tonkin, 6.) Bruce Pugh, 7.) Adrian Salcedo.
That was almost two months ago. In the time since, nothing has really changed. I think Hicks and Gibson remain givens. The only thing I might change would be to move Tonkin up to the #3 spot.
What do you think will happen today?

Hicks and Gibson are the obvious choices. After that, it's anyone's guess.
If they deal Span or Willingham, what are the odds that Arcia makes the 40 man relatively soon?
Arcia was added to the 40 man roster last offseason.
Ah, how'd I miss that? I guess he kinda had to be... Been in the system for what, five years now?

Like you, I have been looking for their announcement since Friday
You also didn't mention Josmil Pinto. I can't see the Twins having five catchers on their roster, but Pinto had an awesome year and may be the best 'catcher' in their system.
