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.

The Twins have said first baseman Justin Morneau continues to make progress in his recovery from a July 7 concussion. Morneau elaborated in an e-mail to the Star Tribune:

"Started full workouts this week [in the gym], and probably won't do any hitting or baseball activities until after TwinsFest [which runs Jan. 28-30], as there is no rush to be ready for Feb. 1st," he said.

Morneau said he'd rather "be ready for [exhibition] games March 1st, and more importantly, be ready for Game 1 in Toronto April 1st."

That will be the Twins' season opener at Rogers Centre, the same place where Morneau suffered last year's season-ending concussion.
