Miguel Sano to have Tommy John Surgery

I figured I would post this here given the obvious minor league interest, but Sano tweaked his elbow in an intra-squad game earlier this week. The MRI showed that the partial tear to his UCL had...

Stolmy Pimentel

I caught the Indianapolis Indians game last night and watched him pitch, and I'm curious about what others think. He got the job done, pitching into the 7th giving up only 4 hits. He didn't get...

Sano Promoted to AA

Not too much to say about this. Should be the biggest test of his prospect status.

Nishi to AAA

3

The Twins mercifully ended Nishi's 2012 MLB campaign by optioning him to Rochester this morning. This leaves Hughes cemented as the utility infielder/bench bat. It also may be a sign that the Twins are rethinking the Plouffe in LF idea. It opens a potential spot for someone. At the moment, I'm speculating that this could be Parmalee's break, as he could move into a 1B/DH role with Justin. Doumit then shifts to a C/1B/DH/RF type role. Either that, or it opens a spot for Burroughs.

Analysis of the Joel Zumaya deal

Perhaps my favorite memory of Zumaya was a late game matchup he had against Justin Morneau when Morneau sent a 99MPH fastball into the stands. This kicked off an impressive offensive outburst from...

Liriano to pitch winter ball

15

I have no idea whether or not to believe this... or for that matter what to think... EDIT: I have had the chance to sit on this a bit more and think about it. He got off to a great start in 2010 due to the conditioning provided by winterball, so from that aspect it is a good thing. I wonder if his problems in 2011 had something to do with him overworking himself in 2010. If that is the case, with the proper amount of rest, he should be pretty decent in 2012. Parker mentioned on his site that Liriano's fastball regressed fairly signficiantly. What I don't get, if this is just a control thing, is why it didn't improve over the course of the season, as Liriano clearly did not. If a few extra starts can fix this, I'm all over this. I tend to think, however, that there may be something else going on.

Willingham a Twin

I assume that means Cuddyer is going elsewhere and we are taking up 2 draft picks. In short, I like Cuddy a lot, but from a purely business and strategic standpoint, this makes the most sense.

Off topic: Fantasy Baseball

I could use some help with pitching thanks in large part to Liriano and Latos really sucking...  I have an offer I'm contemplating...  My hitting is pretty good thanks to some good value picks...

Kfan reporting Thome has been resigned

This seems to be a good move for the team going into 2011.  Hopefully, with a  healthy Morneau he can be relegated to the role that he was in the beginning of the year.  I'd still like to see them...

My plan... more or less, do little

The 2010 Twins suffered a number of players regressing and on top of that had a number of injuries to deal with.  In spite of this, they won 94 games and were the first team to clinch their...

Twins purchase contract of Ben Revere

Not much to say about this except that he's probably going to function as a late inning defensive sub/pinch runner, though I must be honest in saying this makes no sense.  He's probably not ready...

Which pitcher rockets through the system this season?

It seems we've had several pitchers rocket up through the minor league system over the last few years and make themselves elite prospects.  Any one want to hazard a guess as to who it would likely...

Offseason adjustments

I already posted some of this here, but I'm going to repost my idea for what the Twins should do:We desperately need a 3B that hits for average and power. I like Punto, but we need one or two less...
