no reason to rush Cole.
Liriano could be this years AJ Burnett. right now in AAA he has 11 IP, 8 H, 2 ER, 17 K ..and 0 walks
Karstens is also an above average pitcher.
rotoworld has a write up saying Kyle Gibson could be up soon, if he continues to be dominant in AAA. I'm thinking wow he must be doing great. then they show the numbers, and I'm thinking.. sorry, that's not dominant.
Baseball America's Jim Shonerd says Kyle Gibson could be an option for the Twins if he continues to string together a few more dominant starts at Triple-A Rochester.
The Twins are usually on the conservative end of promotions, but Gibson would provide an immediate upgrade to a starting rotation that currently lacks any viable starters. In six Triple-A starts, Gibson has a 4.26 ERA with a 7.7 SO/9 and 1.29 WHIP. After missing most of 2012 due to Tommy John surgery, Gibson is expected to be on a 130-140 innings limit this season.
