    Spring Training - Game 15 - vs Pirates

    Twins made some cuts this morning - which Seth Stohs documented here - no of which are surprising. Unfortunately for Steve Pearce, he will not get to square off against his former organization as after straining his calf (on his leg, not on his ranch) he was re-assigned to the minor league camp.

    Here's today's lineups courtesy of the Star Tribune's Joe Christensen:

    Pirates
    Alex Presley, LF
    Jose Tabata, RF
    Andrew McCutchen, CF
    Garrett Jones, DH
    Casey McGehee, 3B
    Yamaico Navarro, 2B
    Matt Hauge, 1B
    Josh Harrison, SS
    Eric Fryer, C

    Jo Jo Reyes, LHP

    Twins
    Denard Span, CF
    Jamey Carroll, SS
    Joe Mauer, C
    Danny Valencia, 3B
    Trevor Plouffe, LF
    Aaron Bates, 1B
    Luke Hughes, DH
    Wilkin Ramirez, RF
    Alexi Casilla, 2B

    Terry Doyle, RHP
    Today's game can be heard locally on 1500ESPN as well as MLB.TV.

    Doyle is really digging himself in a deep hole this Spring.

    Doyle is probably on his way back to the White Sox with what's unfolding here today.

    I just tuned in and it's 6-0... so I'm assuming Doyle isn't doing much to establish himself with the club.
    I opine about the Twins and Kernels regularly at Knuckleballsblog.com while my alter ego, SD Buhr covers the Kernels for MetroSportsReport.com.

    One out was McGahee thrown by Mauer, so Garrett Jones strikeout was the only out Doyle recorded. Swarzak in.

    Brutal. Nice game for the fans to watch in FM.

    Note that the Twins have yet to score more than 6 runs in an entire game yet this spring...

    So is Mauer's arm/throws to second looking better this year?

    Safe to say that wasn't the start the the Twins or Terry Doyle were hoping for today!

    Mauer, par for the course, 4-3, Span goes to third (If I was watching TV I'd hear: BERT: He did his job, he got the runner over)
    Valencia : rbi single.

    To Doyle's defense (and his performance was awful) : he did not plan to start today (Baker was) so not sure when Baker was scratched and whether Doyle prepared for this game. Same to Swarzak's defense: he was slated to go in the 4th inning so probably not ready when he got in. This is not the season, but ST...
