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.

The Minnesota Twins will recall SP Samuel Deduno and place him in the rotation Friday, May 24, passing up top prospect Kyle Gibson. Deduno will replace Pedro Hernandez.
Fantasy Tip: Deduno is best known for his success in this March's World Baseball Classic for the champion Dominican Republic squad. His control issues have held him back from taking a step forward in the bigs, though AL-only scroungers could find useful, roster-capping innings here, especially during home starts. Gibson, however, should be a factor for the Twins sometime this summer after his Super 2 status clears.

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.

The Minnesota Twins recalled RP Caleb Thielbar from Triple-A Rochester Monday, May 20, and optioned SP Pedro Hernandez in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: The club's Friday starter is TBA right now, meaning Kyle Gibson could be the option to be called up to make his major league debut. There was speculation last week that Hernandez could be sent down. If you're in an AL-only league, it might be worth the speculative pick-up of Gibson now.

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson, who threw a shutout with Triple-A Rochester Wednesday, May 8, will not take the place of SP Pedro Hernandez in the rotation, according to general manager Terry Ryan.
Fantasy Tip: Gibson is the team's top pitching prospect, but his workload will be limited this year after recovering from Tommy John surgery. He's not a lock to come up later in the year for these reasons, but he'll be an option for fantasy owners next year.

The Minnesota Twins optioned SP Kyle Gibson and P Caleb Thielbar to Triple-A Rochester and reassigned P Anthony Slama, SS James Beresford and C Kyle Knudson to minor league camp.

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson displayed a 96 mph fastball that had sinking action on it in his last spring appearance.

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson has the lead in the competition for the No. 5 rotation spot this spring. Gibson said his command is back after going through Tommy John surgery, and the coaching staff has been very impressed with his work. He won't have that long of a leash as the other starters in camp, and if he struggles, the team will likely send him to the minors.

Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said he's not afraid to have SP Kyle Gibson and OF Aaron Hicks on the team's opening day roster.
