FORT MYERS, Fla. — Looks like the Twins are back at full strength this morning, though they’re getting a slow start on their workouts. Trevor Plouffe was back in the batting cage shortly after sunrise, back from the illness that sidelined him yesterday.
And Alex Meyer has returned to camp after spending the past three days in his hometown of Greensburg, Ind., for the funeral of his grandfather. Don Meyer, 76, died last Monday.
The Twins held a team meeting at 8 a.m. to hear from representatives of B.A.T., a charitable organization that helps former players in difficult circumstances, financial and otherwise. Now the team is on the practice fields, waiting to start their second full-squad workout. It’s already 73 degrees just after 9 a.m., and it’s expected to reach the mid-80s by noon, when batting practice should be going on.
