This is exactly the type of small move smart teams make every winter to add depth and options for a season.
If Kubel talkes ABs away from younger players, it will be due to injuries and/or...

Great thread but a difficult one. I love to follow the Twins minors but simply don't have the knowledge of Seth and Jeremy and others. However....
