The very fact it was a hard decision tells you just how bad the team really is.

What is hard about this decision? The guy can't hit major league pitching; therefore, he shouldn't be in the major leagues. You can't have a career .185 hitter on your bench

It's almost always a hard decision. If he hit as well as his dad and walked as much and whiffed as little, he'd be a very valuable backup for some MLB team.

Difficult decesion only for teams mired in mediocrity and no primary goal of winning games. Hopefully it's the last we see of him.

It is not like was released. One phone call to AAA and he will be back on the team within 24 hours. I would be surprised if he is not back before June 1.

Hey editors- another article since yesterday incorrectly listing Matt Clement as someone who was sent down yesterday. Matt Clement was a pitcher that blew out his arm and hasn't pitched in the majors since 2006. JEFF Clement is the minor league free agent the Twins signed and finally sent down yesterday.

His arm is valuable....does he have enough talent to try to come back as a pitcher????

Career batting average is WELL below the Mendoza line....only on the Twins could this have EVER been acceptable. To the poster who thinks he'll be back by June 1st , I'd bet he'll be back by MAY 1st......lol gardy loves him

Butera should only be a bullpen catcher.

All the other teams have backup catchers that hit well over .300 every year. What is wrong with the Twins?
