    Minnesota Twins -- Off-season 2022-23

    With the 40 man roster full and 12 players on the 60-day IL, the Twins have a lot of decisions to make. What to do with Sano and Leon? How about Pagan? They are going to keep Kirilloff, Lewis and Larnach, but there are several others that will be jettisoned.
    Here is the roster as of today:

    Here are some of the roster moves the Twins have made.
    10/11/22 Detroit Tigers claimed SS Jermaine Palacios off waivers from Minnesota Twins.
    10/11/22 Minnesota Twins sent RHP Jhon Romero outright to St. Paul Saints.
    10/11/22 Minnesota Twins sent LHP Devin Smeltzer outright to St. Paul Saints.
    10/11/22 Boston Red Sox claimed CF Caleb Hamilton off waivers from Minnesota Twins.
    10/11/22 Baltimore Orioles claimed CF Jake Cave off waivers from Minnesota Twins.
    I will miss Cave. He may not have hit for a good average, but he played hard and did what he was asked to do. He can be a good 4th outfielder.

    Gary Sanchez, Michael Fulmer, Aaron Sanchez, Danny Columbe, Tyler Thornburg, Billy Hamilton and Joe Smith are free agents, along with Carlos Correa.
    Do the Twins break the bank and sign Correa to a 5-year deal?
    Do the Twins bring back Gary Sanchez to DH?
    How about the pitchers?
    Billy Hamilton didn't do a whole lot for the team, so I don't expect to see him even considered.

    It might be time to let Correa go and we might have to start over paying for some pitching.

    Twins moved 4 prospects to the 40-man roster to keep them from the rule 5 draft.
    https://www.mlb.com/twins/news/twins...2-rule-5-draft
    Edouard Julien, Matt Canterino, Brent Headrick and Casey Legumina were added to the roster which is now full. Barring a trade, the team will not add anyone. The highest rated prospect left unprotected is Misael Urbina, an outfielder who has not reached high class A yet. He is the 8th ranked prospect.

    Urshela to the Angels for Alejandro Hidalgo, a righty starting pitcher that will be in High Class A next year. I'll get a chance to see him pitch there.

    Reportedly, the Twins have dealt Casey Legumina to the Reds for Kyle Farmer.

    Confirmed by MLB. Casey Legumina to the Reds for Kyle Farmer.
    Next up a rule 5 catcher?

    The Twins are highly motivated to re-sign Carlos Correa.

    Buxton has been cleared to start running. He should be on track to be ready for spring training.

    I am so tired of protecting part time players. I hope he can play more and more otherwise trade him. I like him and he is very talented but man I want a everyday guy!!
