    What Roster Changes Do You Expect?

    I hope to see the Twins bring in another starter and maybe a closer. Not sure about Belisle or Hildenberger in that role all season.
    Thoughts?

    Pitching, pitching, and pitching. Starting pitcher (2), relief (2-3), closer (1)!!!!!

    Daniel Palka is gone. The Twins DFA'd him and the White Sox claimed him. Randy Rosario was DFA'd and was claimed by the Cubs. Niko Goodrum was outrighted from the 40-man roster and will go to Rochester. This leaves the team with 37 players on the 40-man roster.
    I expect some more moves this off season.

    Chris Gimenez and Ryan O'Rourke are off the 40-man roster, as is Nik Hurley. Hurley was claimed by the Pirates. the other 2 have been declared free agents.

    Currently, the Twins have 34 players on their 40-man roster so more changes are coming.

    Rumor has it that the Twins are interested in Gerrit Cole (Pittsburgh) and Jake Odorizzi (Tampa). Both would cost some important prospects (Zach Granite would likely be involved in either of these deals), but either would help the team.
    I like the thought of picking up Gerrit Cole, as he has the ability to miss a lot of bats and strikes out almost 1 batter per inning.
    Odorizzi has similar strikeout numbers, but is not as physically impressive as Cole is.
    Some "experts" suggest signing Jason Vargas to fill a slot in the rotation. Not sure of this move, as it seems to be just another in a long line of poor decisions to help the rotation. Hughes did very nicely for a year and Santana has looked pretty good, but the others haven't been really good.

    With Zack Littell, Stephen Gonsalves and Lewis Thorpe added to the 40-man roster, there are now only 3 slots available.
