Breaking News

Mid-day post today. KFAN is reporting that Kyle Lohse has been demoted to Triple-A and Boof Bonser will start Saturday against the Brewers. I'll update if I hear it from a more solid source and can provide a link.

*UPDATE*
Here's a link to the Pioneer Press story, it's official. Bonser will start on Sunday, not Saturday as I mis-stated above. Should be an interesting series in Milwaukee, with the Twins starting a trio of rookies in Baker, Liriano and Bonser against a Brewers lineup that is filled with its fair share of young talent as well.

I'm really surprised by this bold move. AAA is a huge demotion for a guy who has been in the bigs since 2001.

I wonder if they will attempt to turn him into a relief pitcher there.

Maybe, but in any case, this is great news. Its good to see the Twins making some smarter movies and trying things out. Bonser can not do any worse than Lohse.

SBG said...

Good thing the Twins offered Lohse arbitration, huh?

Nick N. said...

Rotoworld.com wrote about the possibility earlier today: "If Lohse is demoted it may quickly lead to a trade and the team will likely call up Boof Bonser from Triple-A."

So a trade could soon by on the way. Unfortunately, I have to imagine Lohse's stock is at an all-time low.

Now they just need to have Bonser bring Bartlett up with him.

I'm hoping this means more moves will be coming. I would assume that, as Terry Ryan was hesitant to put two rookies in the starting rotation, he doesn't really think the Twins can contend with three (I don't know whether Baker is technically a rookie, but the point is valid regardless). Is this the start of a rebuilding program?

Nick N. said...

Yeah, Baker tossed 53.2 innings last year and I think the rookie cutoff is 50, so technically he is not considered a rookie, but for all intensive purposes he is. I don't necessarily think this is a sign that Ryan is ready to give up on this season and rebuild for the future, I think it is a legitimate effort to turn the season around. This team is talented enough to contend, they just have to get better pitching than Silva and Lohse have given them.
