Twins Outright Anthony Recker

The Twins have outrighted veteran catcher Anthony Recker off of the team’s 40-man roster, as LaVelle E. Neal III of the Star Tribune tweets. It is not clear if the team anticipates a corresponding move at this time. Recker, 33, went to Minnesota along with Jaime Garcia just days ago. Since that time, it seems,…

We don’t know if the Twins are buyers or sellers, so let’s talk about Anthony Recker’s butt

We don’t know if the Twins are buyers or sellers, so let’s talk about Anthony Recker’s butt

This backstop’s back doesn’t stop. The local and national baseball press seem pretty convinced that the Twins are on the verge of calling it a nice run and selling assets. Of course, if the Twins sweep this weekend and some combo of Cleveland/KC/Tampa cool off, that might change the metrics. Or, Jaime Garcia will make zero starts for Minnesota in the funniest trade ever. But, as of Friday morning, nothing is happening. So, let’s talk about Anthony Recker’s butt. The catcher, acquired in the Jaime Garcia trade, was sent to Double-A Thursday. However, with John Paul Murphy getting...

Twins trade John Ryan Murphy to Diamondbacks for LHP Gabriel Moya

Twins trade John Ryan Murphy to Diamondbacks for LHP Gabriel Moya

About that trading a catcher thing... When the Twins acquired backup catcher Anthony Recker from the Braves as part of the Jaime Garcia trade, many speculated (including myself) that the Twins may be trying to trade one of the four catchers already on their 40-man roster. It appears now that the Twins have done just that, sending John Ryan Murphy to the Diamondbacks for left-hander Gabriel Moya. Moya, 22, was rated as Arizona's 25th best prospect by MLB.com. He’s spent 2017 serving as the closer for Arizona’s Double-A team, the Jackson Generals. You could say he’s done a good job,...

Twins solve catching logjam be assigning Anthony Recker to Double-A

Twins solve catching logjam be assigning Anthony Recker to Double-A

The Twins could still be planning another trade, but at least this makes some more sense. Sort of. When the Twins acquired veteran pitcher Jaime Garcia from the Braves earlier this week, the deal included one curious detail: catcher Anthony Recker. The Twins already had four catchers on their 40-man roster—Jason Castro and Chris Gimenez in the majors, plus John Ryan Murphy and Mitch Garver in Triple-A—so it was far from clear why they would want the 33-year-old fringe MLBer. The move caused people to speculate that the Twins were planning to try and trade one of their current catchers....

Twins return Rule 5 draftee Justin Haley to the Red Sox

Twins return Rule 5 draftee Justin Haley to the Red Sox

Well this may be good news for all you Bartolo Colon fans, but probably not the best news for you Twins fans. Facing a massive roster crunch after acquiring Jaime Garcia and Anthony Recker from the Braves, and needing to activate Rule 5 Draftee Justin Case Haley from his rehab assignment by tomorrow, the Twins did something I did not expect—return Justin Haley to the Red Sox. Rule 5 right-hander Justin Haley was outrighted and returned to the Red Sox. Clears 40-man spot for Recker.— Rhett Bollinger (@RhettBollinger) July 24, 2017 According to the rules of the Rule 5 draft, the...

Braves turn few months of Jaime Garcia into a decent trade return

Braves turn few months of Jaime Garcia into a decent trade return

The Braves picked up a prospect and got the Twins to take on the rest of Jaime Garcia’s contract. Not bad. The mini-saga involving the Braves and Twins with Jaime Garcia at the center of trade talks has reached its final destination, as the two clubs have finally agreed to a deal that will send Garcia and Anthony Recker to Minnesota. As far as the Twins are concerned, their rotation is their clear and glaring weakness — as evidenced by the fact that they were willing to take a flier on Bartolo Colon (who is reportedly seriously considering retirement at the moment) to help their...

Minnesota also got some cash, all in return for a 19-year-old pitching prospect from the Dominican Republic. Just when you thought the Twins had bungled that trade for Jaime Garcia, they go out and get things done. The Twins announced late Monday that they have, in fact, acquired Jaime Garcia from the Braves, along with fringe-MLB catcher Anthony Recker and some cash. In return, the Twins are sending young pitching prospect Huascar Ynoa to Atlanta. The move comes as a bit of a surprise, since it sounded like talks between the teams had fallen apart, and rumors that other teams were now...

Braves trade Jaime Garcia to Twins

The sides completed a 3-player deal Monday afternoon. The Twins have acquired left-hander Jaime Garcia, catcher Anthony Recker and cash ($100k) from the Braves for minor-league right Huascar Ynoa, according to a team announcement. Minnesota and Atlanta were said to be close to finalizing a deal sending Garcia to the Twins late last week, though the agreement fell through due to Atlanta’s concerns with the medical reports on righty Nick Burdi, who was in the original iteration of the deal. Garcia drew interest from the Brewers, Astros, Yankees and Royals between when the first deal with...
