Not the guys on the 40 man roster. Once they are sent down, they can't come back and play in MLB spring training games. Non-roster guys can.

I know.  That's my point Lol.  ABW II might have had more ABs as a non roster guy call up as opposed to being on the 40 man.  6 ABs in 10 games is a wow, but I'm sure Twins have their reasons.  Has anyone seen him in BP or any of his 6 ABs?  Are there improvements to notice?

I'm going to be in Florida for a week starting March 18. While I'm not there specifically for spring training, I do plan to be in Ft. Myers Saturday and Sunday and plan to see the Twins play the Yankees that Sunday (March 20.) My question is - Are there any workouts that take place on Sunday morning? Or does everybody take that day off (other than the players who play in the exhibition game?) I'd love to hang out around the practice fields if there are any activities going on.

Thanks for the update, Seth. We'll be arriving in Florida today and we're hoping to see some of the minor leaguers practice or play games. Has anyone been able to find the minor league schedule for games? Seth, you said they start next week. Do you mean Monday? It seems last time I was there schedules came out online much earlier.

They play games at 1pm against each other on Sunday, Monday and Tue., and then start playing other teams Wednesday. The rosters and schedule are in a box on the wall outside of the minor league offices.

he gone!

There are major improvements both in pitch recognition and fielding and throwing that need to be made here.And with Park as the DH and Arcia and Santana needing looks, Walker does not fit the bill.The Twins have higher priorities.He hill get his PAs and fielding time now that the MiLB camp opens.He will have an additional week as a minor leaguer to get ready for the season because that camp breaks later.
