    No, he was on first, advanced to second... and was replaced. So either injury... or MLB promotion...? I'm thinking injury.

    Well, let's be honest... neither Dozier nor Florimon have exactly set the world on fire. I wouldn't have expected moves to get made this soon, but I certainly could see Nate Hanson get a call up that results in Beresford moving to Rochester. Petterson moving up behind him to NB and, conceivably, Polanco getting the jump up to Ft. Myers.

    Too bad they didn't put Rosario on the plane instead of Peterson. Nothing against AJ but it would be fun to see them push Rosario

    Dozier is doing much better and Florimon is better with the glove (and was better with the stick in the minors) than Hanson. Plus Hanson is a third baseman and would have to compete with Plouffe (and there is not comparison) Also of all the aforementioned, only Plouffe is older than Hanson (and that by six months.) He is a 26 year old with 4-5 games only at AAA and career MiLB OBP at .320. He does not deserve a call up. I'd rather see the Twins call up Sano, if they need a third baseman than Hanson...

    Nice guy and local and might get it together some time, but he still has not earned a call up.

    In a move that will generate far more excitement than it is worth...

    Samuel Deduno will be activated tomorrow and start for Rochester.

    (I will drive the hype machine.)

    Good for Murphy. I met the family that had unofficially "adopted" him while he was in Fort Myers last summer. Glad to see him move to a full-season level.

    The Twins/Kernels have announced C Jairo Rodriguez has been "transferred" to the Fort Myers Miracle. Interesting choice of words.

    The move leaves the Kernels with a 23-man active roster.

    The Miracle side of that move was sending B.K. Santy back across the street. Miracle roster at 25.

    It does probably make some sense for the Kernels to cut back to two catchers. It seems like they've had to use Tyler Grimes as the DH with some regularity just to get him plate appearances. That's not ideal.

    Yeah, I think it's time to get Grimes more time behind the plate. They could use another hitter, or since they're sticking with the 6-man rotation, never have enough pitching.

    Michael Quesada officially added to the Cedar Rapids roster today. They also receive LHP Josue Montanez and OF Jeremias Pineda (received last year from Red Sox for Danny Valencia). Romy Jimenez was sent down to EST.

    Are you surprised about Pineda not going through E-Town, first, Seth? Any implications for CF and Buxton?
