...Our friend Seth Stohs is reporting that the Twins have activated Joe Mauer. To make room for him, they have optioned Juan Morillo to Rochester. It has also been reported that Morillo cleared waivers enabling the Twins to make this move.
This is perfect for the Twins as they can keep Morillo and work with him at Rochester. If this young man can gain any control with his 95+mph fastball, he could be a very good short reliever.
This also delays the decision on the catchers until sometime next week when Jesse Crain is eligible to come off the DL. Assuming Crain is healthy next week, they then will need to make a move with one of their catchers or another move elsewhere on the roster.
