Still not much going on. But you knew that already.
- The Twins have officially released Andrew Albers, their 2013 Minor League Pitcher of the Year, so he can ply his craft in Korea. We wish him well. The unconditional nature of the release also means the 40-man roster has 39 players on it. WHO WILL BE THE 40TH.
