Twins vs. Pirates 3/30

By: Kelly Thesier/

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Today marks the final spring outing for Francisco Liriano.

The Twins have yet to name a fifth starter, although manager Ron Gardenhire has made it clear that Liriano has the edge for the role. So we’ll see if the manager decides to name his fifth starter or will wait a little longer to make the decision.

Glen Perkins and Ron Mahay are both scheduled to pitch in Minor League contests today. Delmon Young will also get some swings down on the other side of the complex as well.
