  1. Cotton could do that — but he could have done that in April too, and he didn’t. (He was first outrighted by the Cubs back in 2020.) FWIW, with less than 5 years service time, if Cotton elected free agency instead of accepting the outright assignment, he would forfeit his current contract too. Not that it is much, but he might get less on a straight minor league deal with another team.
  2. Yes, that was for Arraez. The 40-man is currently full.
  3. Yes, players on the COVID injured list are eligible for rehab assignments. The A’s did it recently with Lou Trivino.
  4. My guess is Sano to the 60-day IL to open the 40-man spot. For the 26-man roster, they could option Yennier Cano or Cody Stashak from the bullpen. Or Mark Contreras from the position player group.
  5. It will require two corresponding moves: one to clear a spot on the 40-man roster, and another to open a spot on the 26-man active roster.
  6. Knoblauch probably doesn’t need any additional misfortune! I’d nominate an active ex-Twin on a current Twins rival. Lance Lynn is already injured. Liam Hendriks?
  7. To sweep, or be swept, that is the question. Not all tragedy, thankfully, but the drama at Target Field has carried over to the TD forums. Whether 'tis nobler in the forums to suffer the slings and arrows of the outrageous Astros, or to take arms against the Oakland A's, the TD community found itself looking closely at a changing roster all week, as well as pondering rosters that might have been. @4twinsJA celebrates Gilberto Celestino in Have Twins found their 4th outfielder? That's two signs of progress in one post: Celestino's stront start and the performance of our "starting" three outfielders. We hope those trends continue. Looking west, the eponymous topic Taylor Rogers finds @CRF acknowledging the closer's solid season. Unfortunately, it's for the Padres, as Twins fans are left pondering the trade returns and how his absence might ultimately affect our 2022 season fate. No such regret is detected from @Trov in Did Twins Trade Berrios at right time? Our former ace has scuffled a bit in Toronto, while the Twins rotation has started strong this year and the prospects received are nearing the bigs. Another cautionary tale of a one-time "player who got away" is Akil Baddoo-What a Difference a Year Makes. @zwiefz notes his fall from Rookie of the Year candidate a year ago to the minor leagues now. Finally, did you know the Twins magazine is not only distributed at the ballpark, but also online? @shortround81 shared that tip in the forum last month, and this month suspects a "cover jinx" in the magazine with Could It Be? Stay tuned to see if any players are willing to pose for the June cover. Got a roster move to break, a player to discuss, or a superstition to share? The community welcomes it in the TD forums.

  9. Sounds like a discretionary thing now. MLBTR discussed this rule on April 15, 2022: In any case, I don't think it could apply to the Twins right now, because Arraez and Bundy were immediately replaced with guys already on the 40-man roster.
  10. Maybe they were hoping to get 5 innings in? Assuming the score held up to that point, then the game would have been final rather than suspended, and we wouldn't need to play the remaining innings.
  11. From what I understand, the whole world was like this, for the entire decade of the 1970s.
  12. If they can’t resume tonight, the game will be suspended and resumed from the same point on a future date. The old “5 innings” rule is no more. No clean slate for the Twins, unfortunately! From a March 2022 report: ”the 2020-21 suspended game rule has been made a permanent part of the CBA between MLB and the MLB Players Association.” https://www.bleedcubbieblue.com/platform/amp/2022/3/24/22994534/mlb-officially-allowing-games-to-be-suspended-at-any-point
