Minor League Transactions

There are a number of minor league transactions to report on today, so here goes:

First, after yesterday's promotions of Danny Valencia, Brian Dinkelman, and Johnny Woodard from Beloit to Ft. Myers, it was pretty clear that a few players would be going in the reverse direction. Today, that became a reality, as the Twins demoted Whit Robbins, Matt Betsill, and Eli Tintor.

Demotions are always rough, of course, but these demotions were deserved. Betsill was hitting just .155 in 129 AB's, Tintor was hitting .178 in 185 AB's, and Robbins was leading the bunch with a .210 average in 205 AB's. No matter how you slice it, those numbers are terrible, and this was a much needed move. Hopefully the Beloit trio who were promoted yesterday will play a bit better than the three guys they're replacing.

In one other note, Ben Revere, the Twins first round pick in this year's draft, has been added to the GCL Twins roster. In his first two games with the GCL Twins, Revere has gone 4-for-7 (including a 3-for-3 performance this afternoon), so things are promising so far. Incidentally, Ken Harvey was also added to the GCL Twins roster as he makes his way back from injury. He more than likely will end up in Rochester as soon as he's healthy and in playing shape.
