SID’s JOTTINGS

 

MLB.com ran a long feature on former Twins stars Justin Morneau and Michael Cuddyer, who will be teammates again with the Colorado Rockies this season. Said Morneau: “[Having Cuddyer with the Rockies] makes the transition a little easier. He is a guy I have looked up to in the past and that I can go to if I need anything.” Cuddyer said Morneau has little to worry about in adjusting to his new team. “He cares about being a good friend and a good teammate,” Cuddyer said. “He cares about his guys that are with him, and he wants to do things well for them.”

 

Marcus Sherels is due for a big raise from the Vikings after playing for $555,000 in 2013 and doing a great job. Sherels is a restricted free agent, and if he signs with the Vikings will be paid some $1.4 million. If the Vikings don’t sign him, he likely can make even more than that on the open market as a good punt returner who can also play cornerback.

 

The Gophers baseball team is without two of its best players: Center fielder Dan Moti has his wrist in a brace and catcher Matt Halloran has elbow problems. Freshman Austin Athmann was the hitting star this season, hitting .467 going into Saturday’s doubleheader at Louisiana Tech. … Work has started on the installation of a Musco Sports Lighting System at Siebert Field. The lights were paid for by the Foundation for Minnesota Baseball, a charitable nonprofit organization that believes in baseball as a force for good that brings people together.

 

Former Twins third baseman Danny Valencia is competing for the starting job with the Royals and hit a solo homer in his first spring training game.

 

Former Centennial High pitcher Chris Anderson is listed as the Dodgers’ No. 5 prospect by Baseball America. Anderson, the Dodgers’ first-round pick last year out of Jacksonville University, was 3-0 with a 1.96 ERA for Class A Great Lakes.
