La Velle Neal III of the Star Tribune isn't giving fans a lot of hope when he writes that the Twins have no idea who their opening day starting pitcher will be.
Pitching coach Rick Anderson will be watching closely when Twins pitchers and catchers take the field for their first workout of spring training on Wednesday.
With Scott Diamond recovering from surgery the favorite might be Vance Worley, who was acquired when Ben Revere was traded to the Phillies. Worley says he doesn't care if he's the starter on opening day or the fifth starter in the rotation, he just wants to "get this team a W."
General manager Terry Ryan doesn't really care who takes the ball on April 1, either. He's more concerned with "who is going to approach 200 innings on September 21.''
Judd Zulgad writes that even though the immediate future isn't bright, the future plan is clear.
Another promising aspect of the team entering camp is that Glen Perkins could have a very good season as the closer.
