You know, Lance Ray. Popular band in the 90s. Sang "Fly", "Every Morning" and "Someday".

I would like to see Frank have one more nice outing today. It would give us some hope for the starting pitching going into the opening weekend....

LaVelle reports that Chris Parmelee is now in for Burroughs who "tweaked" his back getting off the bus today (and is expected to be fine).

At least he picked him off after letting him on.

0-0 after one inning.

Twins turn a double play to end the inning. 0-0 after 2. I thought I read somewhere they had not had a double play all pre-season. Is that right? No Casila at second for this one.

I see that in LaVelle's article now. Ray is a minor leaguer. I was confused because I'd
never seen himon the roster before.

Lance Ray has one of the sweetest swings I have seen. He'll play RF and 1B for Ft. Myers this year. He had 15 homers last year in Beloit. Andy Leer was the 25th round pick in 2010 out of the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND.

He had an e today, and i remember he had quite a few in the OF last year too.

Hoping he can overcome that. Had some good months in lo-A last year after a slow start.

Yeah, I woudln't say he's a better than average outfielder, for sure. E's happen to everyone, so I can't say he's bad because he had an error, but he's definitely more of a hitter than a fielder. Has a good, accurate arm.

Did Hughes really move over to SS? Interesting. I like Lance Ray. Total breakout candidate this year.
