If Kyle Gibson stays up, which Twin is sent down?

With Twins prospect Kyle Gibson making his first major league start Saturday against Kansas City, he takes the spot of the injured Mike Pelfrey.

When Pelfrey returns, the Twins will have a decision to make. Keep Gibson or send someone down? is convinced Samuel Deduno, Kevin Correia and Scott Diamond are relative locks to stay in the Minnesota rotation. That leaves P.J. Walters or Pelfrey as potential odd men out.

With the July trading deadline coming up, any of the above could potentially be bait for another team.

If so, the Twins could see the return on the Vanimal, Vance Worley — the Opening Day starter jettisoned to Class AAA Rochester.

There’s also prospect Trevor May, who is pitching at Class AA New Britain right now.
