Great music selection this morning, as Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughn tunes swept through the clubhouse. Fitting, perhaps, as some players were headed out the door. They might have the blues.

Infielder Tommy Field has been assigned to minor league camp and lefthander Buddy Boshers (pictured) has been sent to AAA Rochester, bringing the roster to 36.

We should learn of other moves in the next few hours.

Robbie Grossman will play three innings in a minor league game today. He will bat leadoff every inning as he proves that his sore groin muscle has healed.

Nick Tepesch will start for the Twins, but my prediction is that he will be told after the game that he will begin the season in the bullpen, and lefthander Aldalberto Mejia will be named the No. 5 starter.
