Breaking News: Garza Sent Down

It looks like I was right after all about Matt Garza being sent down and Carlos Silva taking over the rotation. I reported yesterday that ESPN had said this, and then later that night, Gardenhire said that the Twins would give them both a shot at making the starting rotation with Silva pitching on Thursday and Garza on Friday.

Well, that wont happen. The Star Tribune just reported that the Twins have optioned Matt Garza to AAA. This is a very surprising move, and one that will upset many fans. This move assures Silva of a rotation spot after posting a spring ERA well above ten.

Leave you thoughts here, and I'll have more on this move tomorrow along with a game recap.
