Deibinson Romero, Jorge Polanco, Eduardo Escobar and Danny Santana reported today. So did Jason Kubel.
Kubel has one of the coveted corner stalls in the clubhouse, and spent part of the morning holding court with Glen Perkins and Matt Guerrier with Josh Willingham not far away.
Looking at the roster, I'm pretty sure that everyone is here, one day before position players are expected to report and two days before the first full squad workout.
The Twins announced this morning that GM Terry Ryan went to the Mayo Clinic yesterday for his one-week checkup following cancer surgery last week, and everything is healing nicely. He's back at home continuing his recovery.
Twins officials have talked about how strange it is for Ryan's office to be empty at this time of year. I miss going in there because he has a HUGE chart of every team's camp roster that takes up an entire wall. We would look at the names and chat about different players.
Mike Pelfrey is back in camp after having an ear infection treated on Wednesday.
Today will be a short day. The team will hold its annual charity golf tournament to raise funds for cancer care in the area.
