Twins Minor League Report (4/30): Quiet Night

It was a very quiet night in the Twins organization on Wednesday. The Twins and Dodgers were able to get their game in. It was the first time the Twins had played since Saturday. In the minor leagues, the Ft. Myers Miracle played and got another quality start from a guy who has done that all season. There was one scheduled day off and two teams were rained out.

And due to the quiet Wednesday, it is going to a big schedule on Thursday. The Twins and Dodgers will play a day-night doubleheader. The two affiliates that were rained out Wednesday will also play two games on Thursday.

We have reached the end of April, the end of the first month of the season. In the next couple days, I will be posting my choices for Twins minor league starting pitcher, relief pitcher and hitter of the month.
