    No surprise he didn't go to Rochester when he was Designated for DFA.

    He will probably sign with a National League team, tear it up, and the Twins will get ripped for giving up on him...

    Even if that's what Berardino means by "lower-level prospect", I doubt the Twins could even get that now, as Kubel looks less fit for an MLB roster than ever before. I think the only way the Twins could trade him at all is if he was willing to take a minor league assignment, which does not appear to be the case (although maybe a more favorable geographic location or path back to the majors would change his mind).

    Not really. He's already off the roster. (Technically, I suppose they could release him and re-sign him and put him back on the roster.)

    Fuld looks terrible at the plate since his return. Hopefully Nunez is back tomorrow so Santana can go back to CF.
