Game 21: Twins make cuts, lineup vs. Orioles

FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Twins made another round of cuts this morning, reassigning five players to Minor League camp.

The players sent to Minor League camp were right-hander Sam Deduno, left-hander Phil Dumatrait, catcher Danny Lehmann, infielder Ray Chang, and outfielder Matt Carson.

None of the moves were unexpected, as they were all non-roster invitees.

After returning Rule 5 pick Terry Doyle to the White Sox yesterday, the Twins now have 39 players in camp. The list includes 18 pitchers (three non-roster), five catchers (two non-roster), 10 infielders (four non-roster), and six outfielders (one non-roster).

Game 18: Twins vs. Pirates lineups

FORT MYERS, Fla. — After a few days off to celebrate my 26th birthday, I’m back covering the Twins today against the Pirates.

The Twins hosted a “B” game against the Pirates this morning on one of the practice fields at the Lee County Sports Complex, and lost 3-2 in eight innings.

Matt Capps tossed two innings for the first time this spring, and didn’t allow a run, giving up only a double over two innings. He also struck out two.

Left-hander Glen Perkins surrendered a run in his one inning of work before giving way to Brendan Wise, who threw two perfect innings.

A few Twins Minor League pitchers saw action including Brad Thompson and Daniel Turpen. Thompson left early after being struck on the wrist by a line drive but was OK. Turpen, acquired in the trade that sent Kevin Slowey to Colorado, allowed one hit and struck out two in one inning.

On the offensive side, Sean Burroughs and Matt Carson both doubled. Ryan Doumit and Tsuyoshi Nishioka also singled for the Twins.

Twins (9-8)
