Minnesota Twins SP P.J. Walters will enter the rotation and start Saturday, May 25.
Fantasy Tip: The Twinkies obviously felt Kyle Gibson needs more development in the minors in his first full season coming off Tommy John surgery. That makes sense, and we probably won't see him until later this year, if at all. Walters has some experience starting, but should only be looked at in deep AL systems.

The Minnesota Twins optioned SP Vance Worley to Triple-A Rochester Wednesday, May 22.
Fantasy Tip: This could open the door once again for a call-up of prospect Kyle Gibson. However, Gibson might need more developmental time in his first full season back from Tommy John surgery, so P.J. Walters is likely a more realistic candidate for promotion. Walters would be an option only for AL-only managers.

Minnesota Twins SPs Kyle Gibson, P.J. Walters and Samuel Deduno are all candidates to start Friday, May 24.
Fantasy Tip: Gibson easily has the most upside of this group, but the Twins may decide to be cautious with him since it's his first full season since returning from Tommy John surgery. Gibson is the only one of these three that warrants consideration in mixed leagues.
