In the AAA draft, they lost recently-signed Jon Velesquez and Tim Atherton. They added RHP Kevin Thomas from the Cardinals, a 27 year old who did well as a reliever at AA last year. They also added Jim Fuller, a 26 year old lefty from the Mets.
As I tweeted, Atherton was one of just three Twins minor league starters that struck out more than a batter per inning (full season only). The other two were Alex Meyer and Trevor May.
Overall, the loss of Atherton far outweighs the new signings.
