Several players reported to camp on Tuesday, including someone old (Jacque Jones) and someone new (Jim Thome).
Jose Mijares also reported after missing the first day of workouts for pitchers and catchers. He had a big smile on his face as he hugged teammates and set up his clubhouse stall. He remained in good spirits even after visiting manager Ron Gardenhire, who was disappointed yesterday that Mijares didn't show up on time.
It's the belief of the media corps - and a couple of the uniformed folk - that Mijares looked about the same size as he was at the end of last season.
Thome, Jones, Jason Kubel, Chris Parmelee and Danny Valencia reported to camp this morning. I think only six or seven players haven't reported yet. Jones has Torii Hunter's old spot in the clubhouse.
Justin Morneau and Alexi Casilla are among the big names not in camp yet. Among the rookies, I'm waiting to see Ben Revere and Estarlin (Starling) De Los Santos get on the field the most. Revere is a top prospect and De Los Santos is supposed to be pretty good.
