    Am I the only one surprised Adam Walker is starting at Ft Myers? I thought he would be at AA

    Based on what? He spent last year in Low A. I think he could get to New Britain, but he's where he should be.

    I can't think of any players that have bypassed Ft. Myers completely and I don't see Walker as such an exceptional talant that they'd bend those rules for him.

    Seth, It appears that the following are all gone: Jose Abreu, Damion Defrank, Miguel Gonzalez, Adonis Pacheco, Leonel Zazueta, Reyson Zoquiel, Chris Mazza, C.J. Ziegler and Harold Garcia?

    If my memory is correct, the Twins don't send Aussies to the DSL. Do you have any idea of where Jack Barrie will be this summer?

    Thanks Seth, the fun baseball begins on Thursday.

    Outside of some pitching choices nothing really to complain about.

    That releif depth is really starting to pile up.

    It's a little sad that the Twins strenght is overwhelmingly in the bullpen, but it certainly is well stocked throughout the system.

    I really hope the team has let it be known that they are ready and willing trade partners in this department. Achter and Oliveros may have made the 25-man in lesser years and they're sitting in New Britain. Aside from missing a closer, having every healthy Rochester bullpen arm at the MLB level right now would have my attention.

    Did the Twins release Romy Jimenez? He was awful last year, but great in 2012.

    Ziegler and Mazza are the guys I expected to see on a full-season team and don't. The other guys probably just aren't around yet. (Seth reminded me last week that they don't bring all guys to minor league Spring Training.) Garcia wasn't retained as a six-year MiLB FA.

    I would assume that Barrie and Pearce (another Aussie that was signed) as well as Verkerk (Netherlands) will show up in FM later this spring and play in the GCL.

    How is Stuart Turners bat? Considering health, who would move up from CR 1st and who would take his spot in the rotation? Gonsalves? Thorpe? Someone else?

    Thanks. For some reason I thought he spent last season at Ft Myers

    I'd like to see Wimmers join Buxton on the New Britain train when his time comes. He could finish in Rochester, if all goes well.

    CJ Ziegler is on the New Britain roster.

    Mazza had an offseason surgery. He was throwing in spring training, but may just still be rehabbing.

    I'll check on all those guys who played in the GCL last year but weren't at minor league spring training.

    I would suspect they'll get there in the next week or so...

    I thought I saw Verkerk tweet something that included the word "Amerika" so he may be in route or there already.

    Turner hit really well in the SEC last year, though reports are that he's not going to hit a lot.

    One of my biggest surprises is that Ethan Mildren is starting in EST. I think he'd be first. Gonsalves is certainly an option.

    I really think Thorpe and Fernando Romero will most likely pitch for E-Town this summer.

    I think that could happen, but i think when he had that surgery right after last season, I think they're going to make sure he's all good, and then get him up... probably fairly quickly.
