    A very big day for our top position and arguably our top pitching prospect. Buxton is back in the line up and it looks like he's lost nothing in the field. Will be interesting to see how long it takes him to get his batting eye back.

    Berrios got what was clearly the most earned promotion of the year. As the youngest pitcher (I believe) at high A he was tearing up the league. He will certainly be a child among men at AA so those of us who were clamoring for this promotion will see what he's got at the next level. Too young, too short and too good. Makes for a high interest promotion.

    Good luck to J O and hoping that Buck can stay off the ground.

    At the time in the draft, the Sam Clay pick baffled me and his stats are backing that up. He probably wouldn't even have been drafted until the 20th rounds yet the Twins took him in what? The 3rd or 4th? Makes no sense!

    Congrats to Berrios and Lance Ray for their promotions to AA. Not sure what JD Williams did, but his game is only getting worse by staying in Cedar Rapids. Are either of the 2 pitchers coming up to the Miracle starters?

    Mildren is a starter and he's been strong lately. He's not going to wow you with 100 mph fastballs, but he's been making steady progress and getting deeper in to games.

    Van Steensel (another Twins Aussie) has been doing a lot of closing and getting a lot of Ks. If you get out to see him pitch, don't wait until he's on the mound to start watching him. Check out his entrance and all his little idiosyncracies on and around the mound. He's a hoot (and a great follow on Twitter, if you're not already following him).

    Mildren was impressive when I saw him (one game, small sample size, I know), but he's backed it up a couple of times.

    Van Steensel is fun to watch... he's definitely transformed himself since his last stint with the Twins organization.

    He's also fun to follow on Twitter: https://twitter.com/toddvs35

    Gonsalves -
    I cannot understand why he keeps getting passed over for promotion to CR. He has pitched 42 innings in Rookie ball with 14 BB & 53 SO.

    He had 1 rough start this year, otherwise he has been pretty good.

    Doe he have an attitude?
    Are they trying to send him a message?

    Hu has good stats & Reed was probably too advanced from the get-go. But why are 24-25 years old blocking him? Guys like Mazza or Muren or Wilson need to be released to make way.

    Excited to see Buxton back, but really excited about Berrios promotion. Any chance we see him in September if he performs well in NB?

    Considering he was the youngest player in A+, and will likely be the youngest at AA it's tough to say. The way he dominated A+ though..... Lots of room for optimism

    If Berrios dominates the rest of the season in AA could he earn a Sept callup?

    Let him dominate AA first. Reminds me of the Steve Martin bit. "You can make a million dollars and not pay taxes. Ok, first, make a million dollars....."

    Just like Gilmarten came up and got to make his first start with AAA because of a doubleheader, will Berrios pitch tonight in New Britain's double dip?

    Were there any drops or DLs at Rochester and New Britain to make room? Hamburger's promotion looks like it might have been a spot start.

    He just pitched three days ago so I highly doubt it.

    I'm seeing Mason Melotakis on the New Britain roster as well, so apparently he was also called up.

    That was exactly my reaction after reading the headline.

    I see that Kennys Vargas is not listed on NB roster and has been listed in the transactions as "Inactive". Is he headed to Rochester (AAA) before the Futures Game?
