Pitchers Scott Diamond and Anthony Swarzak will start the season on the disabled list. Diamond is expected to be in the rotation when he returns, Swarzak in the bullpen.
Also: outfielder Joe Benson was sent to Triple-A Rochester.
Last night against the Yankees, a much different result for the Twins against the Bombers.
Liam Hendriks and the bullpen combined for a one-hitter, topping New York, 5-1. Hendriks allowed the hit and gave up one unearned run in four innings. He struck out two and walk two.
Miguel Sano, the Twins’ top prospect, finished 2-for-5 with a pair of singles.
The Pioneer Press reports that Sano had a chance to catch up with his mentor, Yankees star, Robinson Cano. After the game Cano said Sano “can be one of the best players in this game.”
