Awesome information. Please keep us updated
Well I'm glad you guys liked them, I'll go back and add captions to those pictures later. Yesterday, was an intersquad game with Boyd, Baxendale, and Ferreira pitching for the Red team while Lee and Nunez were the pitchers for the Blue team. So practice was pretty limited to batting cages, balametrics, and stretching. All I can say is Hicks swings like he's trying to crush the ball everytime and Buxton has a cannon for an arm, I still can't figure out why they play him in LF. Derek Rodriguez said he hasn't even thought about trying to be a catcher and the staff isn't considering it (I thought I'd ask since I saw some of you posting it on here).
As far as fines go, Bard owes 5 bucks for charting indifferences while Boyd missed Balametrics the other morning (**** starts at 7:40a is what Hudson told me) so he owes 5 bucks as well. Most of the players are staying in the Hilton Garden Inn off Summerlin/College, only a few miles from the facility; but there are a few that are sharing apartments together.
Is there any more news or updates from the Twins Instructional League? Which players are looking the part and seem to be standing out? Pitchers and Hitters? What do they exactly do day in and day out?
Why are the events of the Twins Fall Instructional Session so secretive? Who played well and who struggled? All I heard was Berrios struggled. Who improved plate discipline or mound command? What are some of the scoops? 50 dudes and no news?
