Any player on the 40-man roster who is still in major league camp on March 20 cannot be optioned to the minors if they are injured and unable to perform -- regardless of when the injury actually occurred. If the player does not heal by Opening Day, he has to go on the major league DL. That means major league service time and major league salary are accumulated.
Who is in that position (and still in the MLB camp) for the Twins?
Alex Burnett and Jeff Manship are on their last option season so it does not affect them
