Twins Sign Day

The Twins today made a move that might affect the starting rotation next season, but it had nothing to do with Santana. According to Joe Christensen, the Twins have signed Zach Day to a minor league contract with an invitation to Spring Training.

Day has show some signs of hope throughout his career, but overall he hasn't been more than a end of the rotation guy.

I personally like this move if it doesn't mean that guys like Slowey are forced to the minors like Matt Garza was last season after the Twins signed veterans Ramon Ortiz and Sidney Ponson. The young guys deserve the chance, so Day shouldn't be put in front of them.

But I must say that I like him as insurance in case of any injuries. Plus, if Boof proves to be inconsistent, it'd be wroth giving Day a shot.

I'll have more about him later today or this weekend...
