Continued: Twins Insider: Being likable not enough of a reason to keep Silva

Righthander Kevin Slowey (3.38 ERA in camp) has joined the "nearly ready" wave because of his excellent control and willingness to mix four pitches.

Righthander Scott Baker (9.64 ERA in five outings) is out of the picture and needs a big year in the minors.

Rotation spots could change over the final 12 games of spring training, based on who sails and who fails as the games turn more serious. But it's clear that Silva not only has to finish camp strong, he also has to start the season strong or he could get run over by the future -- well-liked or not.
