Lineups for Hammond Stadium opener/intrasquad

FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Hammond Stadium opener is this afternoon at 12:05 p.m. CT but the Twins are also set to host an intrasquad game on Field 3 at 9 a.m. CT.

Just about every position player in camp is expected to play today except outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, who is out with a pulled intercostal muscle.

Trevor Plouffe was expected to play in the intrasquad game but wasn’t in the lineup. But he is taking batting practice on the main field so there’s a chance he could come in later in the game. But I didn’t get a chance to talk to him so I’m not sure if they’re just giving him an extra day off. So I’ll do my best to keep you posted on Plouffe.

Here are the lineups:

1. Aaron Hicks, CF
2. Jamey Carroll, 2B

Looks like the Twins likely opening day lineup, minus Plouffe and Doumit. Dozier might be at second instead of Carroll, but I would not be surprised if Gardy found a way to put the veteran Carroll in the opening day lineup, even if Dozier is slated as the regular second baseman.
