    If Santana is out for an extended time.

    We have no backup at SS 2B 3B and CF.

    Do we got a guy on the roster who can cover all 4?

    Sounds like Nunez is headed for a rehab assignment.

    Plouffe (not that he can do all of those) is scheduled to start "working out" with the team in Texas.

    ....not looking promising.

    Doug Bernier, this may be your opportunity.

    I thought Plouffe was going to be working out with the team this weekend with likely activation on Monday. He was never going to do a rehab assignment, so, if he comes back, then Esco moves to short. But yeah, still stuck with pflo as a backup.

And since I do put up the lineups most days, I don't think the Twins lineups appear all that much later than everyone else's and often at the same time or earlier.
    Beg to differ. I get notices when rotoworld and other services post the lineups. Almost invariably it's the other team first and if you scan across all the games that start during the same window that the Twins are in the Twins always are the last to post. Not a big deal, really, just an observation.

    Well, I think your observation is a bit slanted is all.

    The Twins already chose to play shorthanded with the 13-man staff, if Santana will only be listed as day-to-day until Monday, they have to bring up an infielder until they're sure that Plouffe/Nunez are ready to go.

    Or Diary of a Madman!!!
    ... or Ace of Spades, that was released in late 1980.

    Still... 3 days in Texas... Without Santana... No net at 4 positions... Santana will have to be DL'ed quick and the Twins may need to send a pitcher down to call up two players to fill in for Santana does.

    yeah ... but you also said it didn't look promising ... so that's what I was more commenting on as I thought he'd be activated after that.

    ah, yeah, right ... ugh ... but let's wait to see if he's DL'd ... but likely will be 'day to day'

    That was just a general modifier about the overall state of the team not specifically about Plouffe.

    Sorry I wasn't clear.

    And you have that right to your opinion. But my observation was a statement of facts, nothing more, last time I checked, my work desk is pretty level. Strange area to choose to be so argumentative.

    Geez. Santana going down made my belly ache like a was 17 and dumped by a girlfriend. The 3 F's are not gonna cut. 1 is bad enough - offensively.

      And Gardy made it clear over the weekend he wanted another position player, but was not granted that request.


      So, 2-man bench tomorrow if Santana isn't recovered.
