Welcome to this special edition of Twinkie Town: Roster Moves! This was a big one. Lots of exciting roster moves. I’m not even sure if have a handle on it, but here it goes:
- Jorge Polanco — remember him? He was serving and 80-game suspension for testing positive for PEDs right before the season started, but now that thoxe 80 games are over he’s coming back! Shortstop or something. Manny Ramirez. Grumble, garble.
- Activating Polanco also meant the Twins had to make room on the 40-man roster, so Ryan LaMarre was DFAed. Please everyone end your thoughts and prayers to RandBall’s Stu.
- The Twins also called up right-hander Zack Littell, who is normally a starter but will be put into the bullpen for the series in Milwaukee.
- HEY, ALSO, BTW — THE TWINS ACTIVATED BYRON BUXTON BUT OPTIONED HIM BACK TO THE MINORS BECAUSE HEY WHO NEEDS A CENTER FIELDER NOT THE TWINS NOPE.
I think that’s all for roster moves but I will probably be updating this post in like 15 minutes. I mean, why not?
