Not the sharpest outing for Vance Worley today against the Yankees in Florida.

Worley gave up four runs through five innings, as New York topped Minnesota, 9-7, in spring training play.

Worley has a 6.35 ERA this spring.

In other Twins headlines:

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."
