Twins at Orioles 3/8

By: Kelly Thesier/

Sorry for the lack of lineups yesterday, it was a little busy day with Twins news. But I’m in Sarasota for the Twins’ contest against the Orioles today.

As for an update on Joe Nathan, he’s in Minnesota to get his tests done today on his sore right elbow. There will be no news on the results of those exams until tomorrow. Nathan will fly back from Minnesota tonight and the doctors will compare his MRI and CT scan with those he had done in September. So we’ll know more about a plan of action after that takes place.

In other injury news, Glen Perkins has been battling a stiff back, manager Ron Gardenhire said. But Perkins supposedly felt better today when he got to the park. Pat Neshek is also dealing with a sore hamstring. Neither injury sounded like a big deal.

Denard Span said he’s been dealing with a little bit of soreness in his throwing arm, so he’s taking a break from throwing when he’s not playing in games. He said this morning that it’s just a normal part of spring, getting his arm back into shape and it getting a little sore from all the drills.
