According to La Velle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Twins are expected to designate Livan Hernandez for assignment today to make room for Francisco Liriano. The Twins are prepared to eat the remaining $1.66MM on Hernandez's contract.

It's the right move, just several weeks too late. Hernandez turned into a pumpkin in late May, while Liriano has been on a tear for about a month.

It seems that the Twins may have been looking to trade Boof Bonser to clear a spot for Liriano. Talks with the Giants and Rangers did not pan out however.

Liriano is SICK over his last 10 games: 9-0 2.51 ERA 73K 9BB

a no brainer(for at least the last month), I wonder how many games it has already cost the Twins to this point.

It will be interesting to see where Livan ends up. Surely some club will pick him up.

Apparently they offered Boof Bonser for Rich Aurilia in an attempt to clear a spot in the rotation. They were rebuffed. That Brian Sabean, always planning ahead.
