Ramon got wrecked last night, so I'm hopeful Slowey gets the call. Each start he seems to get stronger and stronger (Slowey that is). I will predict that he's up by this time next week.........PLEASE!!!!!
" If the Twins promote Class AAA Rochester pitching whiz Kevin Slowey before June, he could gain an extra year of major league service time, which would allow him to become eligible for salary arbitration sooner. And that could cost the Twins an extra $3 million if the right-hander with the pinpoint control continues to succeed at his present pace.
Promoting Slowey soon could mean he would become eligible for salary arbitration after the 2009 season rather than after 2010, when the Twins are scheduled to play in their new ballpark. Holding Slowey back this summer could save millions for the Twins between 2010 and 2012. "
