Twins 40-Man Updates; GO-GO v. LNP GAME 5 GAME THREAD GET MONEY

New, 663 comments

Before we get to the game thread, you may have heard the Twins did some tinkering with their 40-man roster today. If not, you should know that you may have seen the last of Rene Rivera, Matt Tolbert, Jason Repko and Anthony Slama in Twins uniforms, as they've all been outrighted to Rochester and are eligible for the Rule V draft. Lavelle has all your details here.

I don't think any of those names are too surprising, with the possible exception of Slama, but as LEN3 notes, he's coming off an injury and will be 28 next season. This leaves two open spots on the 40-man roster for, one assumes, Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson. (Feel free to speculate about actual spot-fillers below.)

Former Twin. My late grandmother would say that he's "touched." Will pimp a 4-hop single down 7 runs the same as he would a game-winning home run.



Nick Punto

#8 / Short Stop / St. Louis Cardinals

5-9

Former Twin (so much so that the stock photo still has him with his scuffed-and-scarred TC helmet). Will go out there and compete.



St. Louis wins here, they've got a shot; lose, and I think Milwaukee has to be the prohibitive favorite. What say you?

Enjoy the game, everybody.
