Minnesota Twins Spring Training Games Start Thursday

The Minnesota Twins have been in Florida for a few weeks now, thawing out their game and getting ready for Twins Spring Training 2010. With just a few days left until the first Minnesota Twins Spring Training Game, things are starting to become more and more real for the Twins Roster.

One Twins Roster decision that has been made already is the pitching rotation for the first six games in Florida. Starting things off for the Minnesota Twins Pitchers on Thursday against the Boston Red Sox will be Nick Blackburn and Kevin Slowey. On Friday Carl Pavano will have a shot and Saturday's game will feature Minnesota Twins Pitcher Francisco Liriano. Rounding out the rest of the pitching rotation will be Scott Baker and Brian Duensing.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire told press, "There is some competition here with some depth. There is going to be some pretty good pitching going to (Class) AAA that won't make our staff and that you have to have. I think we are solidifying that depth problem by getting a few people healthy. We'll have some options."
