Updated to reflect Tonkin to AAA, Hoffman to AAA DL and Herrmann to MLB. The Twins currently have an extra man and Rochester is down a guy.

Rosters are updated to reflect the following moves:

Jason Bartlett to the "Disabled List"
Miguel Sulbaran traded to the Yankees in exchange for UTIL Eduardo Nunez, who for the time being, is in Rochester.

My "analysis" of this trade is that Nunez will be with the Twins soon - possibly as soon as Hammer or Arcia need to go on the DL - to play the role Bartlett previously attempted to fill. Nunez still has an option left, which he is currently on, but he has to spend a couple weeks down for it to count. He's also a few months from being arbitration-eligible after this season.

Having both Nunez and Escobar on the same roster is a tad redundant, but neither offer much in terms of long term upside (and are relatively replaceable). Some probably hope that Nunez pushes Florimon for the everyday SS position, but the reality is that Nunez is far from an everyday SS himself. Chances are the more opportunities he's given at SS, the more likely he is to end up in Gardy's doghouse... and that's not a good mix from the beginning.

On the flip side of that coin, though, is that Miguel Sulbaran reported to Spring Training in the doghouse and didn't offer much in terms of upside either. People applauded getting a human being for Butera and people are now applauding the Yanks for getting a human for Nunez. So in the end, it all worked out for everyone. Except Sulbaran. I think.

Too bad about Ziegler. I thought he showed some power in the Independent Leagues. Any news on why he was cut??

Nothing that I heard. I'm sure it will come up during tonight's Hangout. Maybe Seth heard something.

Plenty of 1B options at Rochester and New Britain. Can only have so many on a roster.

That's a move I haven't heard. There have been a handful of organizational moves lately, so expect am update later this morning.

Updated to reflect recent moves. New Britain is still a guy over the limit, because I haven't seen a corresponding move after Vasquez was sent there.

Also, I will periodically update the pitching rotations with the date of their last start and the innings they've pitched throughout the year.

I think Steven Wickens must be on the DL because he has yet to get an at bat this season in AA.

Achter looks to be headed to Rochester, so that opens a spot.

Strained rotator cuff. I don't know that he's on the DL.

Sounds like he is. Wickens DL, Achter AAA replaced by Vasquez and Turpen.

Updated to include Kenny Wilson.

Also, I posted on Twitter the other night that Mike Pelfrey does have an option left, if he approves it. The reason some guys show up as NA is because they have 5+ years of experience. Once you hit 5, you need to give consent.
