    Must have enough confidence that Plouffe will continue his progression as a hitter.

    Jeremias Pineda is a 21 Dominican OF (playing in a league of 18 and 19 year olds) who is pretty much in the Mastroianni/Revere mold. Second season in the GCL, split last season between the DSL and GCL. Was signed by the Red Sox in March of 2011 so he is a late bloomer, thus the delay.

    We shall see

    Twins get a solid return, too. This is exactly the kind of move they needed to make....consider this at least some redemption for Terry Ryan.

    Pineda looks like a high average slappy singles hitter with speed.

    not gonna play CF w/Buxton in GCL. Promote Byron

    There is E-town in between Pineda might be in the Twins A team (probably not Beloit - Kepler and Walker too) before the others

    I like this. With the potential collapse of Angel Morales and doubts about Danny Ortiz, this is a nice move. It will be interesting to see Pineda when he gets to Beloit (hopefully right away, with a Nate Roberts promotion).

    I have a hard time considering a 21 yr old playing in the GCL as "a solid return."

    I think this was more about getting rid of Danny Valencia than getting anything useful in return.

    Geez they must have really, really hated Valencia. Can't really say I blame them for that sentiment. He's appears pretty easy to dislike.

    Buxton wont be in ELIZ next yr.....now he may not join Beloit at start of yr, ala Hicks/Revere.
    Jimmenez/Pineda will both be 22 next yr...they will be in Beloit.

    Seems like a strange acquisition for both sides.

    A move that's good for Valencia and the Twins. I wish him luck and hope gets a shot in Boston.

    So, is Hicks going to get Valencia's 40-man spot?

    I forgot about JD Williams' struggles as well. This is good to get something of value for Valencia, even though I am sure everyone would have preferred a similarly located pitcher.

    Now can someone claim Casilla? Pretty please?

    There are going to be a number of empty 40-man spots available after this season. Florimon might be the direct beneficiary of this move (the Twins adding both Nishi and Florimon for September makes more sense now).
