A flurry of activity in the wake of the Twins releasing Casey Fein and Tommy Milone on Thursday. Here's what we know as of 1:00 Central Daylight Time.
- John Ryan Murphy sent down. As you may know, the Twins traded the very decent Aaron Hicks for him. Although Hicks has struggled for the Yankees, Murphy has entered a dimension beyond struggling into something almost tangibly upsetting, like an abandoned pile of baby dolls in a denuded forest.
- J.R. Graham DFA'd. You may remember Graham from being on the team all last year. He's not on the team anymore.
- Juan Centeno called up. Your new back-up catcher has a career OPS of .688 at AAA. That's all I know about Juan Centeno beyond that he played for the Brewers last year.
- Darin Mastroianni called up. Veteran leadership something something.
UPDATE (1:15 PM): Per Phil Miller of the Strib, Ryan O'Rourke is also DFA'd. Geez Louise.
If anyone else gets whacked or promoted, we'll let you know.
