Bonser to stay on throwing program

Righthander Boof Bonser threw 30 pitches on Wednesday but didn’t have the best news afterward.

“Not any better. Not any worse,” a clearly disappointed Bonser said.

After talking with doctors and coaches, Bonser will remain on his throwing program in hopes that the tendinitis in his shoulder will work its way out. Bonser had a cortisone shot on Thursday, which was supposed to handle the discomfort.

Twins pitching coach Rick Anderson pointed out that MRI’s and X-Rays have revealed no structural damage in the shoulder, leading the Twins to think that the tendinitis tendonitis eventually will go away.

That’s the biggest news as Day Three of camp ended. All position players have arrived, so there’s a lot of action on the fields at the Lee County Sports Complex.

Justin Morneau is back at his 7:30 a.m. cage sessions.

Prospect Wilson Ramos is opening eyes with his power during batting practice.

One thing overlooked: Brendan Harris opened last season at second base and wasn’t too smooth in turning double plays, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire is excited about having Alexi Casilla and Nick Punto up the middle for a whole year. He basically has two shortstops in the middle infield.
