    Glad you got the DSL games in here too Jeremy and highlighted the two biggest international signings of 2013 for the Twins. Twins fans need to watch out for Diaz, just like Amauyrs Minier of the 2012 signings, he projects as a possible 30 HR guy. Diaz was MLB.com's #10 international signing. http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/prospects/watch/y2013/

    "One scout said he would not be surprised if Diaz ended up hitting 40 home runs in the big leagues one day."

    Here's Aaron Gleeman on Diaz and Tapia

    Antonio Tovar, hitting 2nd in that same lineup. Here he is doing batting pratice at age 15. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHt5dmsaf7c
    He's a thick kid.

    Those 3 guys best tools are hit and power.

    Colabello going in this slump is almost like Knoblach not being able to throw to 1st base anymore. Just doesn't make sense. I really hope he turns it around.

    I missed that Max Kepler played 2B last night. Interesting.

    And one of the left-handed-est 2B as well!

    UPDATE - Kepler played centerfield. Rosario was at second base for the first time this season.

    So you mean the question of "Any report on Thorpe and Gonsalves?" will now be "Any report on Gonsalves?"

    Yeah. Box score inaccuracies.

    "How do you spend your days when Alex Meyer starts? Do you turn the lights down and listen to Kenny G? I only ask cause if you did, that would be really weird." That is great! The rest of the report left something to be desired. Not your fault though, everyone just had a bad day.
