Service Time and Callups

It wasn't that long ago that there were alot of discussions about when to callup up Clement and how it would affect his service time in the majors.

Now it seems like that can of worms is being attacked by agents, as Francisco Liriano's agent is calling for the the players union to investigate the Twins for not calling up Liriano after he's posted a 7-0 record with a 2.73 ERA in his last 9 games in AAA. 

His agent Greg Genske is claiming that by not calling him up its had an adverse effect on his service time.   He currently stands at 2 years and 45 days according to the article, and of course 3 years is when arbitration eligibility kicks in.

The Twins say its only because the young guys have pitched well, and Livan Hernandez is the only "veteran" and the only one with post season experience so they are reluctant to move him out of the rotation even though he's been pretty bad.
