It almost has to be Gibson, right? They already have to make another move on the 40 man for Deduno on Friday. I doubt they make another move after likely moving Wood to the 60 day DL.

Wow. I never expected this when they acquired him. But, Ryan is at least taking action.

What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you. :) Also, I am NOT trying to convince anyone I am correct, I'm just talking here, not arguing.

I'm not sure I've seen enough consistency out of Gibson since he was passed over for Deduno.

His performance has been the same every outing since it happened, so he's been very consistent in the last 24 hours or so.....I bet Albers is next.

If we're only looking at 40 man options, then it's Gibson or Hendriks. As far as who gets moved from the 40 man for Deduno?
Here are a few options:
B.J. Hermsen (who's struggling in AA and doesn't have much potential)
Tim Wood
Tyler Robertson
Liam Hendriks
Drew Butera
Chris Herrmann
Joe Benson
Wilkin Ramirez

Two of those guys would have to be kicked off the 40 man if it's Albers. I think Benson,Hendriks, Herrmann, and Ramirez would be very unlikely. Butera would surprise me a little too, but those guys should all be in line. Probably 2/3 of Robertson, Wood, and Hermsen.

Until Gibson can be consistently bad he doesn't belong in the Twins rotation.
Consistency or bust!

May all our prospects be All Stars and the beer be free.

Besides Innings Pitched, what has PJ done better than Albers so far?
Minor League track record? Albers. K/9? Albers. WHIP? Albers. ERA? Albers. Walks/9? Albers. Age? Albers.

They are in the exact same boat roster wise and Andrew has a lot more going for him. I don't see any way Walters would be above Albers or Gibson right now. It's between the last two for the spot.

Consistently bust, perhaps?

Hard to complain about the move. He has an option so I understand the decision but I wonder if yesterdays rain delay helped Pelfrey avoid an 8-0 deficit after three and spared him from being exposed to waivers.

The Rochester rotation is far from exciting outside of Gibson, still, it would at least make things exciting for about two weeks if they just swapped them all out.

I keep waiting to hear that Worley has a bum arm or something. There has to be some sort of explanation for how awful he's been this year, doesn't there? I mean even if you account for the change in leagues, it doesn't mean he'd be this bad. Hopefully he can get straightened out by the staff at AAA.

I've been speculating that the entire Red Wings rotation is better than Twins'. If Cole DeVries pitches better than it has a chance. Virgil Vasquez would also have to be excluded for Hendriks. That's also counting Deduno as a Red Wing.

It's possible, begging certain questions about offseason decisions.....

Twins optioned RHP Vance Worley to Triple-A Rochester.

No word yet on whether Kyle Gibson will be the choice to replace him, but don't count it out. The Twins acquired Worley from the Phillies over the winter in hopes that he would be a productive member of the starting rotation, but he has been anything but. After being knocked around for eight runs in 3 2/3 innings Wednesday by the Braves, the 25-year-old has an ugly 7.21 ERA across 10 starts. If Worley can turn things around in the minors, he figures to get another chance soon.

Twins transferred OF Darin Mastroianni from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for Chris Colabello on the 40-man roster. Mastroianni is scheduled to undergo surgery Wednesday to repair a bone chip on his left ankle and will be sidelined until the second half of the season.

Yup, Ryan still hasn't learned his lesson. Go big or go home in free agency. Use all of you money on one or two quality players. If you nickle and dime a half dozen guys all you end up doing is paying players free agent prices when you could get the same results from the below average talent in AAA.

There's a thread for that.
