  6. The Twins dropped today’s Grapefruit League contest to Atlanta 5-1. But, J.A. Happ and Caleb Thielbar made their Spring Training debuts and one member of the Twins continues to hit this Spring. That and more from the March 15 edition of the Offseason Notebook.Atlanta 5, Minnesota 1 (9 innings) Box Score Twins Takeaways: Standout pitcher: J.A Happ (2 IP, 1H, 0 R, 2 BB, 1 K) Standout hitter: Kyle Garlick (1-for-3 with a solo HR) Not much going today for the Twins who were on the road to face the Atlanta Braves.

  7. Atlanta 5, Minnesota 1 (9 innings) Box Score Twins Takeaways: Standout pitcher: J.A Happ (2 IP, 1H, 0 R, 2 BB, 1 K) Standout hitter: Kyle Garlick (1-for-3 with a solo HR) Not much going today for the Twins who were on the road to face the Atlanta Braves.

Here’s how the Twins lined up today against an Atlanta team that had Acuña, Albies, Freeman, Ozuna, Swanson and other potential starters in it’s lineup. https://twitter.com/betsyhelfand/st

Either way, with the Twins needing enough lead time to get the stadium ready safely, there should be furth
