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.

Twins in routine with first game three days off

Posted by: Phil Miller under MLB Updated: February 20, 2013 - 8:16 AM

With Monday's physicals and Tuesday's pictures out of the way, the Twins clubhouse was notably more relaxed this morning, if only partially occupied. The infielders had a meeting a half-hour before the day's regular workout, to work on signs, shifts, pickoffs and other minutia of the job.


We're in that second-week zone where everyone has settled in on a routine but the games haven't begun yet. First game is Saturday, up in Sarasota against Baltimore. The first televised game on Fox Sports North is nearly two weeks later, a March 8 game against the Red Sox in their JetBlue Stadium home.


The rest of that schedule, by the way: March 15 at Boston; March 21 at New York Yankees; March 23 at Tampa Bay; March 24 vs. Toronto; March 25 vs. St. Louis; and March 28 at Boston. The games on March 23-25 are at noon CT, and the rest are at 6 p.m. The first four games will be broadcast on FSN Plus, the network's alternate channel.


But that's a long way off. For now, the Twins are focused on live batting practice, which continues this morning. Today we'll see Mike Pelfrey again, plus Josh Roenicke and Rule 5 draftee Ryan Pressly. Check back here, and at La Velle E. Neal III's blog, Twins Insider, for updates.
