Rob Antony Comments on Nishioka, Blackburn

1

On Blackburn: "I talked to Nick today, let him know and told him, ‘Go down there, try and get straightened out and when September comes we’ll evaluate the situation,’" Antony said. "There’s no guarantees he’ll come back. We could select him and bring him back if we want, or he could not be back this year — whatever we think is the right situation when the time comes." On Nishi: "I’m sure it’s a pride thing for any player," Antony said. "No. 1, it’s tough to be in the minor leagues; but No. 2, when you’re taken off the major league roster and 29 other clubs pass on you, it tells you you’re not doing very well." http://bollingerbeat.mlblogs.com/

Twins extend deal with Rochester through '14

"We're thrilled because No. 1, it's a good baseball city. But overriding everything else, they have great ownership," Antony said. "They have good people, they treat our players extremely well, they're good to work with for us, and the facilities are good. It's a great stadium, they have good fans, so we're very happy." From Rhett Bollinger / MLB.com

"Those guys are like my brothers," Thome said. "I've sent them texts and e-mails and all that all year long. That's kind of what we do is have fun. One thing about the game is you always stay in touch with your guys, and I think everybody knows my two years here were very, very special. They gave me an opportunity to be honest, when not many teams were calling at that time. I thank them for that, I appreciate that, and same thing for the fans as well." By Jordan Garretson / MLB.com

Armed with a 'splangeup,' Burton is dealing

He's seen success with a pitch he describes as a "splangeup," which is a combination of a splitter and changeup. "You definitely see it dive," Gardenhire said. "He throws it with the same arm action as a fastball, so that's the big thing. It throws off the hitter's timing." By Rhett Bollinger at minnesota.twins.mlb.com
