Danny Valencia is still unavailable because of the flu.

Joe Mauer (pneumonia) and Justin Morneau (concussion symptoms, stomach flu) are not at the park.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said he wants Tsuyoshi Nishioka to work on his upper body strength during the offseason. Nishioka, who has been shut down because of an oblique strain, said he plans to begin offseason workouts as soon as he recovers from his injury.
