Spring Finale
Felix Doubront pitched six-hit ball for five scoreless innings Saturday, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 4-2 in the spring training finale for both teams.
Worley Impresses
After a few bumpy spring training outings, pitcher Vance Worley showed why he deserves to be the Minnesota Twins’ opening day starter. Worley settled down after the first inning and rolled through five in a 7-4 victory against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday.
Twins Beat Orioles
Nick Markakis went 1 for 5 in his return to the Baltimore lineup while Twins pitcher Liam Hendriks exited early after being struck in the hand by a line drive in Minnesota’s 9-5 win over the Orioles.
Twins Fall To Cards
Mike Pelfrey struck out four, walked one and gave up one run and five hits in five innings of work in the Minnesota Twins 4-3 loss to St. Louis on Monday.
Put Me In Coach
Aaron Hicks left the Minnesota Twins with little to debate: He’s their starting center fielder and leadoff hitter. Hicks, who played at Double-A New Britain last year, went 4 for 4 and scored three runs in Sunday's 14-5 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.
Twins Pound Yankees 6-1
Liam Hendriks, bidding for the final spot in Minnesota’s rotation, allowed an unearned run, struck out two and walked two over four innings in the Twins' 6-1 victory over the New York Yankees Thursday.
Dozier Making Strides
Brian Dozier hit his first home run of spring training for the Minnesota Twins during a 6-2, rain-shortened loss to the Miami Marlins on Monday. Dozier is batting .243 with five RBIs this spring and in position to start at second base this season for the Twins after failing to become the everyday shortstop last year.
Is Worley Ready?
Vance Worley could end up starting for the Minnesota Twins on opening day. If he does, he’ll have to pitch better than he has this spring to justify the assignment.
Twins Shutout
Boston starter Felix Doubront limited Minnesota to two hits in four innings and Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a two-run homer in the fourth in the second of the Red Sox’s two split-squad games Friday, a 5-0 night victory over the Minnesota Twins.
