Who will be added today? (40 man roster decisions)
Sometime today, the Twins will announce their 40 man roster changes and additions. It's always a fun time for me to see who gets added. Generally speaking, teams will added anywhere from two to six players, maybe more. The Twins currently have 32 players on their 40 man roster, so technically, they could add eight players today. That is unlikely for a couple of reasons:
1.) There aren't eight players that NEED to be added.
2.) leaving the roster at 38 or 39 allows them to make a Rule 5 pick or two.
3.) leaves room for free agent signings between now and the December 6 Rule 5 draft.
For the Offseason GM Handbook, I wrote about the 40 man roster decisions. I ranked the players in terms of likelihood (in my opinion) of being added:
1.) Aaron Hicks, 2.) Kyle Gibson, 3.) Danny Santana, 4.) BJ Hermsen, 5.) Michael Tonkin, 6.) Bruce Pugh, 7.) Adrian Salcedo.
That was almost two months ago. In the time since, nothing has really changed. I think Hicks and Gibson remain givens. The only thing I might change would be to move Tonkin up to the #3 spot.
What do you think will happen today?
