The Twins this afternoon are expected to announce a two-year player development contract extension with Class AAA Rochester of the International League. (Hat tip to Jim Mandelaro of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, who tweeted it earlier this morning).
There have been rumblings that, after two awful seasons, Rochester would look for another major league team to be affiliated with. But this year's Red Wings team has played well under first-year manager Gene Glynn and are on the fringe of the wild card race.
The Twins still have to hammer out an extension with Class A Beloit, but there are indications that the Twins are pressing for some upgrades of the facilities there.
