Just a couple of notes about potential Twins on the Opening Day roster: I think Aaron Hicks has clearly played himself onto the Rochester roster to start the season. Barring injury, the Twins will keep Sano at Rochester to at least delay free agency if not avoid Super 2 status. That is the business of baseball. Further, Miguel could probably benefit from a little AAA time. Suzuki's signing means adios to Herrmann unless Gardy feels like he needs a third catcher who can play capably in the outfield. I have Pressly and Tonkin going to Rochester, even though both look like they could be decent in the 'pen. I presumed Worley/Diamond both make the team, one as the fifth starter and one as 6th starter/long reliever. The other assumption is that Deduno starts the season on the DL. Finally if Colabello can rake in the spring, he might make the club in place of Parmelee. I chose Parmelee because he's out of options, but for a relatively young guy to be a pinch hitter/bench player might not work out, so perhaps there is a chance that Colabello breaks camp with the Twins. It looks like this particular roster leans left a bit, so maybe Colabello as a bench bat/RH DH might be a better fit, although I just can't see him hitting as a major leaguer.
