La Velle E. Neal III has covered baseball for the Star Tribune since 1998 (the post-Knoblauch era). Born and raised in Chicago, he grew up following the White Sox and hating the Cubs. He attended both the University of Illinois and Illinois-Chicago and began his baseball writing career at the Kansas City Star. He can be heard occasionally on KFAN radio, lending his great baseball mind to Paul Allen and other hosts. Mark Rosen borrows him occasionally for WCCO-TV.

Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

Hicks, Parmelee added to Twins roster

The Twins continued to shuffle their roster Friday, reinstating outfielder Aaron Hicks from the seven-day concussion disabled list and selecting the contract of Chris Parmelee from AAA Rochester. The Twins on Thursday added infielder Eduardo Nunez from Rochester and optioned Pedro Floriman and Chris Hermann to the AAA team while placing outfielder Sam Fuld on the seven-day disabled list for concussion symptoms.

Parmelee was dropped from the 40-man roster at the end of spring training, but earned another major league shot by batting .305 (36-for-118) with seven home runs and 23 RBI in 32 games for Rochester this season. To make room for Parmelee on the 40-man roster the Twins designated AA outfielder Kenny Wilson for assignment. Wilson was claimed off waivers from Toronto on April 24.

Hicks has not played since suffering crasing into a fence in the second game of a doubleheader against the Dodgrs on May 1. Parmelee and Hicks are both expected to be in uniform for tonight's game at Detroit.
