Adam Everett's Goodbye from the Minnesota Twins

AlexAnalyst IJuly 30, 2008

As we thought would happen, the Twins have designated shortstop Adam Everett for assignment after a long stay on the disabled list and his 20-day rehab stint.

It's highly unlikely that he will be involved in any type of trade. There were some rumblings that the Dodgers were interested, but the Star Tribune has since reported that Dodger officials have not even talked about him.

According to La Velle, the Twins have asked Everett to accept an assignment to AAA Rochester. According to the rules on this type of move, the team has 10 days to trade, release, or demote Everett (if he accepts it).

This move just gives the Twins yet another season where they've signed an opening-day shortstop and then later ended the season with another.

UPDATE: He hasn't actually been designated for assignment, as stated earlier. The Twins have just cut him from the 40-man roster and offered him a spot with the AAA team. He has 72 hours to accept, or he'll be free to sign with any team.
