Twins Trim Roster

The Twins made a surprising move today, cutting two players from their 40-man roster. The rosters were due to the league about a week ago, so it's a bit weird that they waited until now to make the moves. This could come as a hint that the Twins expect to either make a move soon, or use those spots in a Santana trade.

I guess we'll have to wait and see...

Anyways, the two players that were taken off the roster were Errol Simonitsch and Ricky Barrett. Both players cleared waivers, and were assigned to AAA Rochester.

With the moves, the Twins now have 37 players on the 40-man roster, and have space to make additional moves without removing other players.
