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 pitcher Samuel Deduno, who left his start Sept. 26 with blurry vision in his left eye, has reported no problems since the season ended. He saw an eye doctor in the Twin Cities on Tuesday, and things checked out fine, General Manager Terry Ryan said.
Citing the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Ryan said he couldn't give more details, but this sounded like good news for Deduno. The 29-year-old righthander from the Dominican Republic went 6-5 with a 4.44 ERA in 15 starts for the Twins this year and remains on their 40-man roster.
