    Seth Stohs got a reaction from D.C Twins in NIck Gordon Sent to AAA - Is He a Long Term Player?   
    If he was removed from the 40-man roster after the season, he would be a free agent. 
    I think he's done enough to put himself on the 40-man  for the full offseason and a utility player role for 2022.

    I love watching Eddie Rosario play baseball!!
     
    That said, Kepler and Sano agreed to the Twins long-term deals so they don't have to go year to year with them. Rosario was offered similar deals at those times (I don't know which offseason or what the offers were, of course). He chose to go year-to-year and this becomes the downside of that... though he could become a free agent in a couple of weeks and maybe end up with a long-term deal from somewhere. 
     
    And Buxton has another year beyond 2021 of arbitration. If 2021 doesn't go well for Buxton, there may be a tough decision on him a year from now.

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from DocBauer in 2020 Minnesota Twins Blueprint, version 1.0   
    I'm not sure I like either of those trades. Gallen is a borderline Top 50 pitching prospect, Balazovic will likely both be top 50-60 this year, Thorpe could be a good #4 starter, plus Rosario. 
    And, not sure Brian Anderson is interesting enough to give up Larnach (top 80ish guy), plus 3 more guys?
    I like Alex Gordon. 
    I like Diekman, probably at $5-6 million rather than $8. I don't mind Bumgarner at 4/72... 4/88 seems generous.

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from DocBauer in Opening Up the Twins 40 Man Roster   
    Rooker doesn't need to be added, so that's a question for a year from now... though likely a topic for about 7-8 months from now when he is added and called up.
     
    Wisler wasn't a signing. It was a claim and things could happen with him. Could get a shot to work with Wes Johnson this spring. Could be DFAd any time during the offseason. 
     
    Gonsalves was a top pitching prospect, and deservedly so, starting at a young age and in the low minors. He continued to do well for a couple of years, and last year was a lost year due to injury. He might still be in their picture and plans. Hildenberger is in a similar boat... though again, both certainly are more on the bubble now than a year ago. I'd say that is true for several.guys, including Stewart, maybe even Gordon from a position player standpoint.

    Schoop has played 17 MLB games at 3B, and not since 2014. That isn't a fit for a marginal offensive player on a team with serious Postseason aspirations.

    If I'm voting for first-half MVP, i give my vote to 1) Polanco, 2) Kepler...
     
    If I'm being asked which player is most valuable to the Twins, I can certainly agree with the choice for Buxton... though I think that they would struggle if Polanco  was out for an extended period of time as well.

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from LA VIkes Fan in Water on La Tortuga   
    I lean more toward Ted. I would get beat up this winter when I would mention names like Parmelee and Pinto in referring to Astudillo. 
     
    But I don't think it would require him to "entirely shift his approach." I don't think I would want that. And frankly, it's not realistic. The key is for him to understand where he can barrel up the baseball. That doesn't have to mean just in the strike zone. He''s not going to become Mitch Garver at the plate, ,and that's OK. But he just can't swing at everything.
     
    Eddie Rosario went through that struggle early in 2016 and got sent down. I talked to someone at that time and they said that Eddie's going to be aggressive ,and that can be OK IF he understands which pitches he can hit hard. Kirby Puckett was able to barrel up baseballs that weren't in the strike zone. Rosario can do the same. What Rosario has done successfully is tame down his approach enough to lay off a few more non-strikes that he just can''t' do anything with and crush pitches he can. 
     
    If Astudillo can do that he can be an OK backup catcher or fill that 25th man job that he started the season with. 
     
    The other thing is defense... it''s just not good. He's not a good defensive catcher at all. And that is easily his best defensive position. So on this current Twins roster where is he going to play consistently enough to make it worth it?
     
    C: Behind Garver and Castro.
    1B: Behind Cron, Gonzalez, Sano and Adrianza.
    3B: Behind Sano, Gonzalez and Adrianza
    OF: Behind the three starters and Gonzalez and Adrianza. 
     
    Hard to get at bats. But again, a nice luxury to have when he is hitting. But MLB pitchers are too good and they have adjusted to him. Like all MLB hitters, the onus is now on Astudillo to make the next adjustment... and that will determine what his career path will be.
     
    If he can make an adjustment, he can be that 25th man and #2 or #3 catcher. If not ,I know I don't want a pinch hitter who swings at the first pitch no matter where it's thrown.
