Well, if keeping Garlick, can he play first base? Miranda really needs to go abck to St. Paul and do the work. Or, are we waiting to swap him out shortly for the return of Kirilloff.

 

Now down to 13 pitchers, a week early!

Garlick to 1B makes a ton of sense, with him handling lefties and Arraez taking on righties. I like that platoon.

While I agree that there are too many outfielders who would fit in the fourth OF/platoon designation, Garlick hasn't played much first base at all (11 games--70 innings in the minors). Much like starting pitching, injuries and ineffectiveness usually sort this kind of glut out. It really doesn't make sense for Miranda and his .395 OPS to take up a roster spot solely because of his ability to play first base.

I said that about Celestino, too ... dunno ... I guess maybe they have a different eye to things than we do?

Maybe. I'm hoping the plan is to play Lewis around the diamond in St. Paul until 5/31, then bring him up to play every day as a super utility with Urshela taking over the RHh hitting 1B role 2 games a week and giving those games to Lewis at 3B. Miranda goes down for Lewis. Same idea as Celestino last year - give Miranda some time, see he isn't ready, send him down, and then he's ready next year.

Urshela has 7 career innings at 1B so it's unlikely they'd go that route. Let Arraez continue to play 1B almost everyday and then when kiriloff shows he's ready to be back up he can play there.

 

Cano likely goes down in a day or 2 when Coloumbe is back.

When Lewis comes back up, what is Gordon's worth? 3rd CF, 3rd SS, etc. Unless there are injuries, Lewis coming up may be the end of Gordon's Twins days unless nobody claims him.

Bummer on Ryan. Good thing we have at least a little SP depth. I guess the silver lining is that we can't expect Ryan to throw more than 130 - 150 innings this year given how few he threw last year so I was always expecting that he would start 25 – 28 games, not 32 – 35 games. This might be a good way to limit his innings now during this stretch against weak teams and then probably do it again in say August.

I agree on Nick Gordon being expendable. He will play for somebody in the majors, just not sure it is the Twins

I could actually see the Twins trading Gordon individually or as part of a package for a non-40 man A ball type with potential but not a premium prospect. He has hit and played SS well enough that I can see a weaker team looking for a young shortstop taking a chance on him or a better team in desperate need of a utility guy being willing to give us at least a little something for him. I like him as a player but given what we've seen so far from Lewis Gordon's value to the team is a little superfluous so I think his days are numbered.

That sucks for Ryan.  I hope it's a short stay, and he only misses one start.  Hopefully, Smeltzer can keep performing in what is becoming quite an important role for him this season.

I figured that Smeltzer would be back to at least start one of the doubleheader games in Detroit on the 31st. He may be up until then anyway with Ryan being sidelined.

It's like the MLB is trying to invent reasons for the Twins to keep Lewis down!!!

I kid.

Mostly.

Maybe we need a conspiracy theory thread.

Gilberto Celestino on the COVID-IL

Danny Coulombe activated from the IL

Unfortunately, probably safe to assume that we'll be seeing more guys to the Covid list too.

So if Correa opts out and Lewis becomes the starting SS, they'll still need a utility type. Gordon fills that role well, Maybe Martin could, but until that determination is made I'd keep Gordon on the team.

They have Celestino and Lewis and eventually Martin to back-up CF.  Those three plus Garlick as a corner Ofers.  Lewis and Arraez are the utility Infielders this year.  Next year they will still have Arraez with Steer and Martin ready to take over as utility infielders and both will be better than Gordon.  This assumes they trade or non-tender Urshela.  I am assuming they can get something for him in trade.  Hiopefully they can wotkout a trade for an A baller with some upside for Gordon.  Can they trade him for international money?

I recall last year we had a thread that tracked roster moves the Twins made throughout the 2021 season, and I think that did a good job condensing things down to having all the official moves here rather than having a new topic for every move (bigger moves will still warrant their own topic). I'd like to start off with the flurry of moves that happened today:

Kirilloff to 10-day IL (right wrist inflammation)
Cotton DFA'd

Larnach recalled from St. Paul
Rodríguez selected from St. Paul

So it seems the Cotton experiment is over already - though he may clear waivers. Rodriguez seems like temporary arm who will likely be DFA'd within the next week.

 

Feel free to post more updates here for future roster moves.

 

 

Kirilloff's wrist is to the Twins what Buxton's knee is to the Twins.  The knee is just much more valuable!

It was mentioned in one of the Twins Minor League reports. I don't think anyone brought it up here, but there is a transaction page for minor leaguers, too, in the Minor League forum. (And no one mentioned it there, either, so I moved your comment to that transaction thread. :) )
