    Brian Dozier

    The Twins 2011 prospect of the year is following up with a solid start in AAA.

    not surprising to me, as I was hoping they'd leave him in the bigs, and cut ties with the inconsistent Alexi Casilla.

    .311 BA in Rochester, and an OPS of .832

    This is the kind of offense the Twins need in the bigs.

    I've followed Brian since the Twins drafted him in the 8th round, and had high hopes for him after watching the CWS.

    He handled himself well on the caravan, and am excited for him to solidfy the middle for the next several years.

    It's only a matter of time.

    5'11"/190 pound RH hitter, who turns 25 on the 15th of May.

    1-4 night with a run scored, after a rain out, in a Roch loss for Brian.

    Roch Democrat/Chronicle guy Jim Mandelaro cited Brian for a stellar defensive night.

    So a .275 average in the minors deserves a promotion? Let's wait until he has earned a promotion before recalling him in a rebuilding year. There is no reason to rush him.

    Dozier called up with Morneau going to the DL.

    Good luck Brian!

    Debut tonight vs Meat Weaver.

    Gardy puts Dozier at SS, 2nd in the lineup.

    Nothing like a little pressure.

    Mr. Ed, how is Dozier defensively? I have heard more about his breakout as a hitter than being good or bad in the field. Is he an upgrade over Carroll-Casilla when combined with Carroll?

    I've read he is solid defensively. Some think he's more suited to 2nd,but i've heard no negatives as a fielder.

    And CONGRATS on that first ML hit in the 8th Brian Dozier!

    Dozier made a nice first impression tonight. He seems to have good discipline at the plate and a nice, level swing. Hopefully he can provide a little bit of a spark for a lineup in desperate need of one.

    Another nice Dozier evening at the Target. Multiple smooth fielding plays, a couple hits/first RBI, a walk. Handled the #2 spot in the lineup well.

    Awesome article on Dozier written by Ben Goessling of the Pioneer Press. It discusses where he's from and who he is and what's important and what baseball means. Great stuff!! Definitely recommend the article!

    PINK SHOES. Congrats Brian on the HR! Now I'm reading in Souhan's column/blog that the thought is out there to bring up Florimon at SS, and move Dozier to 3B to cover that gaping hole. Can't say I'd be thrilled with that.
