Not gonna lie. My dumba** thought John Curtiss had disappeared.


He kind of was M.I.A. until he got picked up by MIA!

Jon Thomas Chargois was in camp with the Mariners but was sent to their alternate site.

 

He is not on their 40-man roster.

The immortal Ryan LaMarre signed a minor league deal with the Yankees.

It does not look like he saw any Big League game action with them in Spring Training.

 

Juan Graterol signed a minor league deal with the Angels who traded him last week to the Blue Jays.

 

San Francisco Giants signed free agent RHP Zack Littell to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training although it does not look like he saw any Big League game action with them in Spring Training.

 

Chicago Cubs signed free agent RHP Kohl Stewart (I had such high hopes for him when he was drafted) and optioned him to Iowa.

I lost track of Littell for a second and could have sworn he was heading overseas to play. Besides Romero, wasn’t there another recent Twins pitcher who signed overseas?

Littell signed a minor league with the Giants, but he didn't make the team. I think he's going to start in AAA for them.

Boy, he looked like a real loss for the Twins when he started with LA. I hope he can get an ML job but I guess we haven't really missed out.

Here's what I came up with for opening day/weekend.

 

Baseball is back to a full-season schedule and lots of former Minnesota Twins are on other major league rosters. 

 

Pitchers: Kyle Gibson (Rangers), Martin Perez (Red Sox), David Hale and Brandon Kintzler (Phillies), Rich Hill and Oliver Drake (Rays), Lance Lynn and Liam Hendriks (White Sox), Aaron Slegers (Angels), Ryan Pressly (Astros), Trevor May (Mets), Sergio Romo (A's), Tommy Milone )Blue Jays_Brusdar Graterol (Dodgers), Matt Wisler (Giants), Tyler Kinney (Rockies), Tyler Clippard (Diamondbacks), and John Curtiss (Marlins).

 

Jake Odorizzi will be called up shortly since he signed late with Astros.

 

Former catchers: Alex Avila (Nationals), Jason Castro (Astros), Wilson Ramos (Tigers), and Kurt Suzuki (Angels).

 

Lots of infielders: C.J. Cron (Rockies), Ronald Torreyes (Phillies), Ehire Adrianza (Braves), Eduardo Escobar (Diamondbacks), Marwin Gonzalez (Red Sox), and Jonathan Schoop and Niko Goodrum (Tigers).

 

Only three in the outfield: Aaron Hicks (Yankees), Robbie Grossman (Tigers), and Eddie Rosario (Indians). (Remember when all those former Twins centerfielders were on other teams: Span, Gomez, Revere, Hicks?).

 

Derek Shelton is managing the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Drew Butera?? He's what, 45 years old now?:)

 

Man, defensive catchers and left-handed relievers sure have longevity in this career. I wonder if Brian Dunsing's agent is still getting calls.

After this series with Detroit, it seems the answer is all ex-Twins play for the Detroit Tigers aka Former Twins East.

Graterol set to come off the 10-day IL shortly...he was behind schedule this spring due to a COVID bout this winter, apparently. The Dodgers have missed him...not at all.

Former minor-leaguer Huascar Ynoa had a nice start for the Braves yesterday- 5 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 5 K. Pretty rough 2020 for him, maybe he will have a better 2021.

Anthony Swarzak is back up with the Diamondbacks. Juan Graterol signed with the Blue Jays system. And the Cubs signed Andrew Romaine to a contract to play in their system.

With that funky delivery of his I wouldn’t be surprised if he kept popping up every year on an MLB roster.

Such fond memories people have of Kyle Cody’s time with the Twins

Ryne Harper is with the Nats at least until they get some more players off the COVID list.
