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.

There's a chance to peek in on the Arizona Fall League tonight, when MLB Network televises the annual Rising Stars Game at 8 p.m.

Two of the Twins' former first-round draft picks are on the West Division Roster -- outfielder Ben Revere, who is batting .346, and reliever Carlos Gutierrez, who has a 9.00 ERA. On the two rosters combined, there are 18 former first-round picks, including Dustin Ackley (Mariners) and Eric Hosmer (Royals).

Get to know 'em. Among those who have played in this game in recent years are Giants catcher Buster Posey, White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham, Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun and Yankees righthander Phil Hughes.
