Glen Perkins what to do with him

There can be a very interesting discussion to be made on what to do with Glen Perkins i really believe there are 2 choices assuming he doesnt win the 5th starter job.
1. keep him a starter and send him to Rochester
2. keep him on the roster and put him in the bullpen
My view for the best of the Twins is put him in the bullpen because thats where he would help the team the most right now. Dennys Reyes had a bad year last year and when Glen was healthy he is very effective. I know he missed 3 and a half months last year with a shoulder strain but i think it was a freak thing. The bottom line is he is major league ready and putting him in the minors wont really help him hes 25 and his future is as a starter but i think the present to help the team the most is put him in the bullpen. By doing that your helping out the twins organization the most and really when making decisions like that shouldnt you be thinking how can i help the Twins win as many games as possible and right now that is by having him in the bullpen. I appreciate anyones feedback on this.

Tuesday, Febuary 26th

Today was a big day for the twins because it was their first scrimmage with concordia so we were able to get a look at some twins before the big opener of grapefruit. According to Lavelle the Twins won 7-5 and its way to early to panic but its not to early to be concerned. The one im really concerned with is Philip Humber cause he wasnt throwing very hard and if he can not get his velocity up he is just an average pitcher so look for that to be a big thing throughout the spring. There are a few others to be concerned with but like i said its way to early to worry about anyone humber including so we should get a start looking at the team thursday when the twins play the reds in a grapefruit game with scott baker pitching.
