The #Twins have announced that Steve Holm was optioned to Triple-A Rochester. No corresponding move. Not sure why.— Phil Mackey (@PMac21) May 4, 2011
With an off day Thursday, the Twins won't need to make a decision on a second catcher until Friday. While Kevin Slowey is due to come off the disabled list and join the team, Joe Mauer still isn't ready and there's no way Minnesota goes forward with one backstop. EDIT: Multiple sources confirm that whoever is the Twins second catcher on Friday, he will not be a free agent. This move is either internal, or the team believes they have worked out a trade. I'd think we'd know by tomorrow. EDIT AGAIN: Kelsie Smith from the Pioneer Press warns us not to get our hopes up about a trade, either. Sounds more and more like this will be either Rene Rivera or Danny Lehmann.
