Jordan Balazovic wil get another late start to another season. Got his jaw broken in an altercation on February 11. It will be another 10 days before he can do anything.

Hope it was worth it!

The Rangers have signed outfielder Robbie Grossman, via Jon Heyman of the New York Post. The Texas Rangers have put together a strong offseason and now have the makings of a serious AL West contender. On the onset of Spring Training, the Rangers have made one more offensive addition to their already impressive haul.

A guy who hit .209 with a. 622 OPS is being classified as an offensive addition? I guess if I was a Texas fan, I would be offended.

Well, I've heard he draws a lot of walks.

Which, to some, is better than actually contributing offensively

@Brandon_Warne
It’s probably not great that almost all of the #mntwins’ 2022-23 free agents haven’t signed anywhere

Let's see where we are at...

1B -- Kirilloff (Solano vs. LHP)
2B -- Polanco
SS -- Correa
3B -- Miranda
C -- Vazquez (Jeffers)
LF -- Gallo (Taylor vs. LHP)
CF -- Buxton
RF -- Kepler
DH -- N.Gordon (Farmer vs. LHP)

Kepler still needs to be spelled and Buxton replaced when rested/hurt. There are options.

Minors -- Larnach, Wallner, Celestino, W.Castro, Garlick, Ed.Julien, A.Martin, Br.Lee and Lewis midseason. There are options.


Lopez, Gray, Ryan, Mahle, Maeda -- Ober, Winder, Ro.Hernandez, Woods-Richardson, Varland, Sands, Balazovic, DeLeon, Dobnak, A.Sanchez

Duran, Lopez, Jax, Alcala, Thielbar, Pagan, Moran...still a quality arm short here. Brad Hand have anything left?

I see Buck DH 40% and Taylor CF 40%.

Buxton hates DH and wants to be in CF

Pretty simple

Stay healthy

Spring training is just beginning and I am already tired of hearing that Pagan's stuff is dynamic. Doesn't mean a thing unless you get it over the plate.

If Buxton plays CF 2 of every 4 games with 1 DH and 1 off, I will be happy. Turns out the plan to keep Buxton healthy last year was a bunch of bs. He was already injured and they were trying to keep it quiet.

No. He was injured early in the year on a slide into 2B. It was no secret.

He was quite animated about being upset about it when it happened. They tried to keep him upright after that...to mixed success.

He knows the injury history is a problem. He doesn't want to be hurt. And nobody covered anything up.

If you take out his appearances vs the Guardians last year, he had a good shot at being an All-star.

He already had the knee tendinitis coming out of spring training. The slide aggravated it. They played the slide off as a day to day thing. Shortly they started the party line about resting Buck regularly to prevent injuries and get him on the field for 100+. Souhan even ran with it and lauded the Twins for such a smart savvy approach. What they were really doing was managing an existing injury.

Twins lose to Phillies 10-8

Ryan struggled 2H/2R 1ER/BB/2k in 1.1IP
Brett Headrick, lefty 2 shutout innings eK. Could be a callup at some point this year

Megill blew chunks 3H/3BB/K, 2 homers and 6 runs in a third of an inning. Grand slam one of them. Current Spring ERA is 162

Cody Lawyerson, also a name to remember fanned 3 in his inning

Solo hit a grand slam for the Twins, Celestino had a 2 run single and Miranda had a double and 2 walks

Julien stunk it up with 3Ks

The Twins claimed Santana off waivers from Atlanta. Now the bullpen has that lead guitarist they sorely needed.

That is contributing offensively - better than walking back to the bench with a K. Being selective with pitches is a skill many wish they were better at
