PLUS THREE FROM PATRICK

Righthanders looking for a 2016 breakthrough in Twins bullpen:

Alex Meyer, 26: If manager Paul Molitor had his druthers, the 6-foot-9 Meyer might have been a reliever to start 2015, and a regressive year in Class AAA avoided.

J.T. Chargois, 25: Glen Perkins:"Remember Anthony Slama? Chargois hides the ball like Slama, only throwing 10 miles an hour harder.''

Nick Burdi, 23: To use 1970s jargon — "flamethrower.'' If Burdi throws strikes, he will be in Minnesota this summer.
