Minutes ago, the Twins announced additions to their 40 man roster. RHP David Bromberg, OF Joe Benson, 1B Chris Parmelee, and OF Rene Tosoni were the four players added at this time. The Twins are at 38 players on their 40 man roster, leaving room for a free agent signing, maybe a Japanese import, and/or a Rule 5 pick.
Also, Eric Hacker, who Joe Christensen wrote about a couple of weeks ago, was officially added to the 40 man roster. According to Christensen, the team also re-signed Justin Huber to a minor league contract. He is playing in the Australian Baseball League after spending the 2010 season in Japan.
If you want to see my thoughts on these guys or others that I thought should be considered, just scroll down the page. I would guess that there is a good chance that Kyle Waldrop, who was re-signed to a minor league deal last week, has a good chance of being selected by someone in the Rule 5 draft because he could stick in the big leagues. I also think that Steve Singleton is nearly big-league ready as well, and I think that he could be selected, although again, he wasn’t last year.
