Twins - Activated Silva
Minnesota Twins - Activated 1B Justin Morneau and P Carlos Silva; optioned P Dave Gassner and 3B Terry Tiffee to Rochester.
The Twins dodged a couple bullets here. Originally, the prognosis for Silva was that he had a torn meniscus and would be out for the season, but now it apparently doesn’t even need minor surgery.
The other bullet was Justin Morneau who looked lucky to be in one piece after getting plunked hard by Ron Villone a few weeks ago, escaping without a concussion and only a fortnight of headaches and dizziness. In less than a season, Morneau’s already had two hair hits by pitch (how the hell do you pluralize that anyway) as there was concern that he broke his hand last August, if you recall. He needs to talk to Don Baylor and learn about getting hit on the ass instead. On second thought, maybe not - Baylor might give him hitting advice, too.
Gassner and Tiffee are the roster casualties. Gassner was up for Silva and survived his start very well, but isn’t really a long-term major league prospect. Tiffee, as noted elsewhere (Twins fans are very well served in the team blogs available online), is gone since the Twins only believing in having reserve catchers. Makes sense, too, what if Joe Mauer is injured during a game and then Mike Redmond gets injured in the same game and then Corky Miller gets injured and LeCroy is starting at DH that night? My guess is that someone in the Twins organization believes they’re playing an infinite number of games this season; after all, as (Twin)G approaches infinity, p ((M)i*(R)i*(Corky)i*(L)dh)—>1.
