This isn't anything big, but I was so happy to see the move that I wanted to post it anyways. The Twins today according to the official site, placed catcher Chris Heintz on unconditional release waivers.
I assume this means that he is no longer on the 40-man roster, which also means he shouldn't be in the majors at all next season for the Twins.
Again, this is small, but good news from my standpoint. Last season, Morales deserved the shot over Heintz, but over the past two years, the Twins just wouldn't let him go. Finally it has happened.
That now leaves Rodriguez, Ford, Rabe, and Heintz that the Twins finally got rid of so far this off-season.
