The Oakland A's designated Travis Blackley LHP for assignment. I wanted the Twins to claim Blackley last May when the Giants designated him for assignment and Pavano was trying to pitch with a bum...

Hamburger received a 50-game suspension for failing two tests for recreational drugs.
I'd still like to see the Twins sign him for Rochester. Injuries and poor performances happen all the...

The Baltimore Orioles have claimed Todd Redmond off waivers.
If 5 is average, why did they give Sano a current power grade of 5? 28 home runs for a 19-year old in low A is above average in my opinion.
Arcia is a 4 (below average) for power and hit. .928...
Signing Contreras to a minor league deal to get to Aledmys Diaz. They can be teammates in AAA for a while.
Terry Ryan, the wooer.
From his minor league numbers, it looks like he's more of a flyball pitcher. He might enjoy Target Field.
Redmond and Scott Diamond were teammates on the 2010 Gwinnett Braves.
The Twins currently have a full 40-man roster: 22 pitchers, 8 infielders, 5 outfielders, 5 catchers.
If he is willing to sign for under $2.5 million, I think he'd be a good reliever.
I'll always root for him, as long as he's a Twin.
Dan Johnson (White Sox via Coon Rapids, MN) and Ryan Sweeney (Red Sox via Cedar Rapids, Iowa) are expected to be non-tendered.

I listed a few here.
Good for Livan. He's 53 strikeouts short of 2,000 for his career.
