Kernels Announce Roster Moves, Roster Back To 25

Meet The Team

    April 3, 2014 | 1:28 pm
    CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - For the first time in awhile, the Cedar Rapids Kernels have a full working roster of 25 players.

    The Kernels sent outfielder Romy Jimenez to Minnesota Twins extended spring training Tuesday but received three players in return: catcher Michael Quesada, outfielder Jeremias Pineda and right-handed pitcher Josue Montanez.

    Jimenez was 7-for-71 as a Kernel, with six RBIs. This is the second stint in Cedar Rapids for Montanez, who posted a 3.38 ERA in 2 2/3 innings.

    Quesada was a 24th-round pick of the Twins in 2010 out of Sierra Junior College in California. He just served a 50-game Major League Baseball mandated suspension for testing positive last season for a performance-enhancing drug.

    Pineda is from the Dominican Republic and was acquired in a trade from the Boston Red Sox.
