Twins at Rays 3/25

By: Kelly Thesier/MLB.com

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. — Joe Mauer was packing up this stuff in the clubhouse this morning for his first roadtrip of the spring. Actually it’s his first bus trip in spring since 2008 since he missed all of last spring. One reporter asked if he needed any help in remembering how to take bus trips. He laughed and said he knew where the bus was. His hope was just that he didn’t forget  to pack anything.

Ron Mahay was in the clubhouse this morning after arriving in Fort Myers, Fla. last night. He seemed happy to be back with the Twins and he said he’ll throw a bullpen today.

As for the injury updates:

Left-hander Jose Mijares said his bruised right hand was doing fine today after he took a liner off his glove during a Minor League outing on Wednesday. He said he’ll pitch Thursday.

Glen Perkins’ strained lower back is feeling much better, he said, and he is planning to play catch today.

Wednesday tidbits: Mijares and Slowey

By: Kelly Thesier/MLB.com

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire wasn’t around to see the start of Wednesday’s game against the Marlins because he and pitching coach Rick Anderson were on the Minor League side of the complex to watch left-hander Jose Mijares pitch.

Mijares was going to throw two innings in a Minor League game but in his second inning of work, he was struck by a line drive in his glove. Gardenhire said it struck Mijares awkwardly in the glove and left him with a bruise on his right hand. The trainers told him afterward that Mijares will be fine.

Delmon Young also took some at-bats down in the Minor League game. Gardenhire said Young got a couple hits and stole a base. He was also thrown out on a base, the skipper said.

Gardenhire didn’t get to see Kevin Slowey pitch due to being on the side of the complex. But Slowey continued his success. He’s now allowed just one run over 16 innings this spring and coming off wrist surgery last season, it’s been a very positive sign for the club.

“You are always concerned after a surgery,” Gardenhire said. “Even after he started his rehab, he had a little swelling, a little soreness at times. They told him he was going to have that. He’s a tough kid and he let it play out. Since we’ve gotten going here, he’s thrown the ball as well as anyone we have in camp. It’s good to see. It means a lot to this rotation.”
