Twins reportedly bring back Mark Hamburger
Posted 31 August 2013 - 08:04 PM
Before he can actually play with the Twins organization, whether it be AA or AAA, he needs to serve a 50 game suspension for a violation of a drug of abuse.
Hamburger, you recall, signed with the Twins after a tryout camp. He impressed with an upper-90s fastball, but he was traded to the Rangers in exchange for Eddie Guardado. He worked his way up the system and spent time pitching in the big leagues for Texas in September the first year they went to the World Series.
It's a reclamation project, but it's a terrific low risk, decent reward type of signing for the team.

If it works out, it works out.

Hamburger may have more upside then the pitcher (duke welker) the Twins received for Morneau. Kind of ironic.
Thielbar, now Hamburger, anyone else the Twins should be looking at on the Saints or in the AA?

Sattler started in Ft. Myers and proceeded to rise to Rochester.
His season ended early with T.J. surgery.

Has Colabello emerged???!!!! I guess if a 28+ yr old , hitting .190 is emerging, I guess I don't mind it either!!!!
Well if the Twins cannot somehow manage to trade for players under the age of 27 because they aren't willing to pay Morneau's salary, I don't mind seeing them target Indy league players to see if another Colabello emerges.

You have a lot to offer, even if I often think you could have said it in a less abrasive fashion.
