September Callups

Well, the Rochester Red Wings lost yesterday, and fell out of the playoff race at the same time. With that, the rest of the call ups are expected to be made either tonight or tomorrow when they wrap of the remainder of the season.

So far, Luis Rodriguez has been called back up, but here are some others that can be expected.

Kevin Slowey
The Twins have already said that Slowey will be called up this week, and will make a pitching appearance on Tuesday.

Jose Morales
Morales is a catcher, and Joe Mauer will miss another week. He should get the call, and has a pretty nice bat too.

Lew Ford
Ford should get the call with the rest of the players. There is really no reason that he wouldn't be called up.

One more hitter
With these players, there could be one more hitter. Possibly Denard Span since he is on the 40-man roster already. Or, possibly someone like Matt Tolbert or Matt Macri.

One more pitcher
The Twins also might call up one more pitcher. Most likely not Duensing or Blackburn since both are on the Fall League roster.

I'll keep you updated on what happens.
