Raindrops are falling in Fort Myers, so today’s workout has been delayed some. The position players are able to hit in covered batting cages, so it was cool to watch Denard Span and Carlos Gomez work with hitting coach Joe Vavra while Delmon Young warmed up by hitting off a tee.
That’s right. D.Y. is here. We tried to grab him before he went to the cages, but he was unsure what the routine with the Twins is so he asked to hold a presser later. That was cool with us.
Jason Kubel is here, too. “I don’t recognize a lot of people in here,” he said.
He’s right. According to the Twins, 30 different players are in this camp from last year, which is 10 more than the year before.
No Dennys Reyes sighting yet.
I’m going underground the rest of the day. Joe C. is handling the daily stuff while I finish up a feature. Brackin, don’t even think about calling me.
