BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 The PTBNL from the Shannon Stewart trade, so for Bobby Kielty, the Twins got two months of Stewart in '03 (he had to be re-signed as a free agent), plus Gassner, a nifty exchange. Gassner's not overpowering, but he's a better prospect than most minor league lefty finesse guys. He's never struggled as a pro, and nothing in his peripheral stats suggests that what you see isn't what you'll get. If he has a good camp, and if Ron Gardenhire decides he has to have a second lefty in his rotation, Gassner makes a better choice than taking another spin with Terry Mulholland.
