Minnesota – Martin Perez mentored by Johan Santana

Martin Perez has discovered a mentor in Johan Santana. Betsy Helfland in the Pioneer Press. Perez has impressed this spring using a noticeable uptick in velocity and seems like he might be a good pickup.

You may remember me saying it felt silly when the poor Perez was signed up, forcing the Twins into DFA Chase De Jong. Well, De Jong cleared waivers and Perez is looking sexy, so take this as yet another reminder that I am always wrong about everything.

Except twist corporations, I’m right about that. What a smooth transition into this bit about the way the MLB forces minor leaguers to function day and night for months at spring training without any real pay!

MLB.com listed every team’s”most indispensable player.” Do you agree with their choice for the Twins? Or is the right answer obviously everyone’s favorite noun, Willians Astudillo.

TJ locks me in a cage with no food if I don’t mention Willians each Monday
