    Rosario, Buxton

    A couple of quick tweets from Berardino:

    Both are disappointing. I hope both come to resolution soon.

    Couldn't Berardino have at least thrown us a bone on Sano's rehab progress?

    2-3 months post op he can start lightly throwing a ball. About the only news you would have is range of motion reports and the no news is good news variety.

    IIRC Rosario was said to have tested positive for benzoylecgonine. Did anyone ever ask if Rosario ever drank the Coca Tea? That, or his issue could be diabetes.

    This has probably already been covered somewhere, but has Rosario's suspension started? Is there some rule that he has to report before his 50 games start accruing? I hope not...

    I was confused about that, too, Zephrin.

    I know he could have partaken in regular Spring Training even though he was supposed to start his suspension when the season started.

    But would he be allowed to participate in extended Spring Training? Wouldn't the Twins have had to assign him to a minor league team and then have him be suspended for their first 50 games (or be suspended from the first 50 games of the Rock Cats since that was his last team)??

    And yet it seemed curious that Berardino would phrase it the way he did.

    It started with Opening Day (Thursday).

    It's all speculation.

    Exactly. We know so little about these players' lives (especially those from Latin America) that it could be just about anything.

    Am I just a 'nervous nellie' for being concerned about Buxton's injury?
    I can't find the article, but I could have sworn it was initially reported that he would miss about a week.
    It's now been almost a month, and he's still not even swinging a bat! And now I'm hearing his return could be as late as May?
    I hope this is still just a minor injury and the team is just being super cautious with their top prospect, but with the Sano injury I can't help but be nervous that it might be something more serious.
    If both our top prospects end up losing huge chunks of development time, that is going to be a tough pill to swallow.

    Did he say which Wednesday? Sorry, I just couldn't resist.

    TC is looking further and further away for Mr. Buxton.

    May.....sigh. Some good news on the Twins front would be a nice change this spring.
    Lighten up Francis....

    Hopefully by May we will forget about Buxton's injury. This organization needs some good news though. Sano is out for the year, Buxton is having injury issues, Rosario is having issues. The free agent starting pitchers are as bad as anyone could imagine they could have been. Glen Perkins has a 10.80 ERA. Our bullpen has been overused already.
