What was the injury? By opening day, he had played in 3 weeks of games and was playing as much as the starters in the last week to 10 days.

The goal should be for him to be successful enough this year to add to the 40 man roster at the end of the year. From there, he's got three option years. So... what's the rush? Let's make sure...
He dove and made a catch and came out and said it hurt. Sounds like a sprained wrist, which is day-to-day, but they'll be cautious.
A few days later, after some swelling goes down, they're able to...
Check out this link to find out what the Twins manager would nickname you:
Parmelee can play RF and 1B.
Herrmann can play RF and 1B and 3B and LF and CF and Catcher.
He's also on the 40 man roster. Parmelee isn't.
Let's consider who he (Tonkin) would replace (assuming no injury):
Perkins - No.
Burton - Long Leash, not being demoted.
Duensing - Long Leash, not being demoted.
Fien - has an option, but...
So wait, you're saying the offense is just fine, so let's minimally improve the offense and hurt the defense and the pitchers? Not sure I'd jump into that decision.
I'd say Herrmann in LF with Kubel in RF.
As we heard on the broadcast today, the Twins were going to give Arcia Monday off along with Tuesday's off day and then evaluate on Wednesday if they...
He probably should have been up all along, but the Twins have promoted Chris Herrmann to the big league club. He is expected to be there for Opening Day (Monday).
No news about whether the Twins...

Congratulations to the MInnesota Twins' manager Ron Gardenhire. With the Twins 7-3 win over Cleveland today (Saturday), Gardenhire becomes the 60th manager in MLB history to reach 1,000 career wins!...

I welcome and encourage people to continue adopting prospects. One of my goals is to have a forum for every player, from Miguel Sano to the guys who may not get out of extended spring training.
Yeah, call it seeing him in spring training and some of the behind the scenes stuff, and I'm a big Plouffe believer. Is he a gold glover at 3B? No. But he's fine. The play yesterday was bad. He knows...
Just a couple thoughts in response:
1.) Has anyone really ever called Kevin Correia an Ace? He was the Twins best pitcher (arguably) last year, but no one puts him in the "ace" category.

Here we are. Let the REAL games begin.
Gametime weather: Cloudy. Winds blowing in from center field at; around 55.

Thank you for all of the kind words and support. I definitely hope that we are able to make this an annual thing. Thank you for all of the feedback. It's all very helpful as we hope to provide great...
I kind of think that says everything, doesn't it? Florimon is the starting shortstop.
I would have liked to have seen Bartlett get a month of every day at bats playing 5-7 different positions equally in Rochester. He's fine in CF. It's a pretty easy position to play. I'd worry more in...
Correct. As we talked about on tonight's Twins Hangouts, the Twins traded Revere, a .650 OPS 4th OF and got a mid-rotation starting pitcher (who had 2 good years of big league service time in a small...
Have to LOVE the Twins...

yes, he struck out, but he's clearly a very good athlete. He's a switch hitter. He has a nice swing.
His defense at SS is terrific.
I think he's a guy who is (has?) going to take...

I assume there will be a contingency of Twins fans who will complain and say that Iglesius should be playing, right?
03-19-2014, 10:15 PM
Actually, yes. Teams bring in veterans all the time in an attempt to make sure young players are ready when called up. I don't get the Pelfrey signing, but it's not the end of the world. Correia was...

He got back on Saturday already. He's definitely a team guy and loves being around the guys...
I like "They all looked fine." Now that's some analysis that you can't just get anywhere! :)
Hey AJ, if you get on ESPN, be sure to plug Twins Daily!!! We'll get you a shirt!!
I still think that someone would pick him up, but at this point, that may be best for him and for the Twins. Personally, I'm not willing to completely shut the door on Worley. I hope that he would...
