Sorry this is late. We had to wait for the manager to monitor all of batting practice and most of infield practice before he graced us with his presence.
Carlos Gomez could be available as early as tomorrow as he recovers from a sore back. Gomez said he could have played this week but the trainers told him it’s not worth pushing it.
Tonight’s game is televised on FSN. Bert Blyleven who was last seen on the bench for the Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic is one the scene. The Twins’ games against St. Louis on Sunday (on WFTC) and Tampa Bay on Monday (on FSN) will also be televised.
There will be roster moves tomorrow morning. I would not be surprised if this one hits double digits.
Twins: 1. Span, CF. 2. Casilla, 2B. 3. Harris, 3B. 4. Morneau, 1B. 5. Cuddyer, RF. 6. Young, LF. 7. Redmond, C. 8. Punto, SS. 9. Blackburn P. Ayala, Nathan, Henn, Duensing, Mijares, Keppel and Crain also on the list to pitch.
Reds: 1. Taveras, CF. 2. Hariston, SS. 3. Votto, 1B. 4. Phillips, 2B. 5. Bruce, RF. 6. Keppinger, 3B. 7. Dickerson, LF, 8, Hernandez, C. 9. Owings, P. Weathers, Lincoln and Cordero on the list to pitch.
