YearComment
2012 "Big Daddy" Delaney is trying to escape the Quad-A label, but hasn't been given a chance to. Despite effective numbers at Triple-A for the Twins, they designated him for assignment. The Rays quickly snatched him up and bounced him back and forth between Durham and Tampa Bay in 2011. Delaney’s usually solid control betrayed him during his time in the majors, and the Rays removed him from the 40-man roster after the season. Whatever hopes he has of shedding the Quad-A label might have to come at the hands of another organization.
2011 Delaney doesn't light up the radar gun—his fastball tops out at 92 mph—but he has been able to rack up impressive strikeout totals thanks to a biting slider. He delivers from a three-quarters arm angle, making him lethal to right-handed hitters, but southpaws see his pitches well enough to give him trouble. If Delaney can find a way to combat lefties, he'll have a chance to be a decent major-league middle reliever; until then, he'll bear the ROOGY cross.
2010 Like most Twins farmhands, Rob Delaney succeeds by locating his pitches with pinpoint precision, not on stuff.
2009 Former NDFA Rob Delaney made the jump to Double-A with style; the only way to get a walk off of him is to ask nicely and then make a sizable donation to his favorite charity. He should get a shot in the pen sometime this season.

2010-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Am I crazy to think that the Twins can put together a darn good bullpen even with losing Crain, Guerrier, Rauch, and Fuentes (assuming they all leave)? I think it's very funny that Twins fans complain that Jose Mijares is inconsistent but also worry that Crain will leave; call for Anthony Slama and Rob Delaney for nearly two years, but now fear the bullpen will be awful when they might get a chance; and don't trust any low-cost options when a guy like Guerrier was originally claimed off waivers. If the Twins can sort through the many options, they could piece together a very effective group. That being said, any established relievers you would recommed for relatively cheap?

You're not crazy, and you can find the next Matt Guerrier. I think Grant Balfour's worth getting, and Arthur Rhodes and Chan Ho Park or even Kevin Gregg are names worth spending seven figures for. Kerry Wood, Dan Wheeler, an NRI for Justin Duchscherer... it's still a buyer's market as far as finding relief help, given the multiplicity of alternatives. (Christina Kahrl)
