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.

JUPITER, FLA. -- Today's game is being delayed by rain. They've announced a scheduled first pitch of 12:25 p.m. (Central).

Denard Span was going to play center field, but the Twins switched him to DH, to prevent injury on the wet grass.

Kevin Slowey, who has a 0.56 ERA this spring, makes his sixth start of the spring for the Twins. Albert Pujols and Matt Holliday are both in the lineup for the Cardinals.

The game will be televised on ESPN.
