Twins sign J.B. Shuck to minor league deal

Are you serious? The Twins coming off a a 59-103 season sign free agent J.B. Shuck to a minor league deal? Why? The guy is 29 years old and has played all or parts of five season with the Astros, Angels, Indians and White Sox. Shuck has eight career home runs, a .251 career average with a .299 OBP. He is weak defensively but he can play all three outfield positions……

The Twins already have Eddie Rosario, Byron Buxton, Max Kepler, Danny Santana, and Robbie Grossman on the major league club with Daniel Palka and Zach Granite also on the 40-man roster.

I know he won’t make the trip to Minnesota in April but why burn a roster spot and any time Shuck plays some younger player with a chance to get better will not. Just seems silly to me.

    COULD NOT agree more.

    Odd move. Nothing against him, but a player of his caliber is available any time.
