Shane Robinson has officially been added to the Twins' 40-man roster, something that had to happen before he could be eligible to the 40-man roster. Barring some unforeseen transaction, Robinson is headed to Detroit and Opening Day.

The Twins also announced on Thursday that their home opener on Apr. 13 against the Royals has been sold out.

Mike Pelfrey, who is getting used to life as a reliever, said that he's going to pitch two innings on Friday at Boston.

Here are pitching probables for the Twins series in Detroit

Monday: Phil Hughes vs David Price

Tuesday: Ervin Santana vs Anibal Sanchez

Wednesday: Ricky Nolasco vs Shane Greene

Josmil Pinto is expected to replace Kurt Suzuki in the late innings, which will be his first game action since March 21.

Nick Burdi is among extra pitchers today.
