Well, the initial rosters for the Arizona Fall League are out and public.
You can look at these a few ways:
(1) These guys will likely be added to the 40-man roster for the coming season;
(2) They probably won't receive a call-up, as the AFL season starts before the major league season concludes;
(3) The Twins made some interesting choices.
Joining the Phoenix Desert Dogs will be: (Pitchers) Brian Duensing, Ryan Mullins, Anthony Swarzak, Nick Blackburn. (Catcher) Drew Butera. (Infielders) Trevor Plouffe, David Winfee.
For a complete list as of today, go to:
I wonder if this means the Twins will be protecting not only Morales, but also Butera after this season (so long Chris Heintz).
Is Winfree truly higher on the pecking order than Moses, now. Which will start at AAA next season at third, or will Moses become primarily a DH (shades of Danny Matienzo last year and Doug Deeds in 2007).
Who ARE the bullpen prospects in the Twins system. Really?
