I highly doubt that. With different schedules, off days, injuries, call ups and send downs, and other situations going on with every team in the league, I dont see that happening.
All other things being equal, you want your pitcher to be #2 instead of #1. It may only make a difference in two starts over an entire year, and that may only mean one extra win, but I've won and lost fantasy leagues over less than that. Every little bit counts.
With all due respect, I don't think Gardenhire gives a crap about whether or not Johan in the #2 spot helps your fantasy season...
I do agree, though, that it will not make a significant difference in terms of #2 vs. #2 as the rotations between teams get zig-zagged pretty quickly as the season gets going.
I'm pretty sure this move has less to do with talent other than making sure than Radke and Johan are in the top 2. After that's done, the loyal soldier for the Twins get the call for Opening Day while the young gun gets in line.
