This morning, the Minnesota Twins acquired first-baseman Matt Rizzotti from the Philadelphia Phillies. The 6’5″, 255 pound 26-year old Rizzotti, throws and hits left-handed and batted .295 in AA last year with 24 home-runs and 84 RBI. The Twins only had to give up cash to get Rizzotti and no prospects so the price could not be better. It also signifies the Twins desire to keep young first-baseman Chris Parmelee on the roster when the season starts. On the surface, this already looks like a win for the Twins.
