Good morning. It's Minnesota Day here in Fort Myers. The parking lot filled up early, the grilling has been going on for a couple hours. Music is thumping. There's a bad master of ceremonies. A little bit of everything here.

There's also Phil Hughes, who is making his third start this spring and looking to pitch longer than two innings. He struggled in his first start against Boston but was sharper when he faced Baltimore earlier this week. He gets the Orioles again today in Fort Myers.

Phil Miller is with the split squad in Bradenton, where Ryan Vogelsong will face some of his former teammates.

After today's games, the coaching staff is expected to meet with CBO Derek Falvey and GM Thad Levine and make the first cuts of camp. Shouldn't be too painful, just some of the players who haven't seen a lot of game action and pitchers who need to stretch out for minor league seasons.

One scheduling note: Justin Haley will start on Monday for Trevor May, who is out with a torn elbow ligament. He'll face the Rays' Jose De Leon, who was in trade rumors involving Brian Dozier during the offseason. The Dodgers ended up dealing De Leon to Tampa Bay for Logan Forsythe.
