Reusse: Tale of Two Prospects (Arcia, Tonkin)
Reality from Fort Myers: Tale of 2 Prospects - Minnesota Twins news | 1500 ESPN Twin Cities ? Minnesota Sports News & Opinion (Twins, Vikings, Wolves, Wild, Gophers) | Sportswire: Minnesota Twins
Patrick Reusse wrote about the frustration or disappointment of the Twins that they have not been able to see Oswaldo Arcia in spring training games so far due to his injury. It is likely he will be among the first cuts from the team early next week.
The other prospect he talked about was Michael Tonkin, the hard-throwing righty who split 2012 between Beloit and Ft. Myers. Regarding Tonkin, Reusse wrote:
I'd be shocked if he was up with the Twins in the first half... maybe a September promotion? Maybe?
Yet, there's another tall fellow - 6-foot-7 Michael Tonkin - who could be setting himself up for being a piece of the Twins' bullpen during the first half of the schedule.
