Twins' 40-Man roster shrinks again.

In a tweet from Chris Cotillo of SB Nation's Daily Dish this morning, it was announced that the Twins have outrighted Pedro Hernandez.

Hernandez, 24, came to the Twins with infielder Eduardo Escobar in the trade that sent Francisco Liriano to the White Sox in August, 2012. The left-handed Hernandez made 12 starts and two relief appearances for Minnesota this season, posting red flags in his peripheral numbers as well as the mainstream ones.

2013 - Pedro Hernandez 3-3 14 12 0 0 0 0 56.2 80 43 43 10 23 29 6.83 1.82

This move brings the Twins' 40-man roster to 35 players, with two caveats:

  • Mike Pelfrey will be removed when free agency officially begins, and
  • Samuel Deduno will be added when he is activated from the 60-day disabled list
...all of which still leaves the Twins with 35 players on the 40-man roster.

Roughly six weeks ago we discussed which players were likely to be cut at 2013's conclusion. While my opinions have shifted on a couple of players, Minnesota has now outrighted seven of those 14 players. Those still on the roster are Brian Duensing, Liam Hendriks, B.J. Hermsen, Mike Pelfrey, Chris Herrmann, Eric Fryer, and Chris Colabello. As of today, apart from Pelfrey the only players I see as definite cuts would be Hermsen and Fryer.
