Alexi called upPosted by Paul Singman at 11:45am
Alexi Casilla will take over as the Twins starting second baseman while Nick Punto is on the DL with a strained groin. Casilla is worth a flier in AL-Leagues only as most likely he will be sent down to Triple-A upon Punto's return in the minimum 15 days. If Casilla does play well, however, he could steal the job from Punto, who was hitting just .187 with zero home runs before getting hurt.
Casilla was not any better in the majors earlier this season, batting a laughable .167/.231/.202 before getting sent down. His defense and hustle are also concerns, the Twins say.
Paul has been managing fantasy baseball teams for many seasons and writing for THT Fantasy over the past three years. He is currently a student at UPenn welcomes readers' thoughts at his email here or in the comments below.
