Spring Training Game 25: Orioles @ Twins

First Pitch: 6:05pm CDT
Radio: Twins Radio Network
Know Thine Enemy: Camden Chat

Well, the rosters are being trimmed even further after the game. Steve Holm, Jeff Bailey, Phil Dumatrait and Danny Lehmann have or will be assigned to minor league camp today. Carlos Gutierrez, Kyle Waldrop, Chuck James, Rene Rivera, Chase Lambin and Brian Dinkleman will all be assigned next week. What does this mean? I'll let Joe Christensen explain:

What does this mean? The Twins have five remaining candidates -- LHP Dusty Hughes, LHP Glen Perkins, RHP Jeff Manship, RHP Jim Hoey and LHP Scott Diamond -- competing for three open bullpen spots.

You're not the only one hoping the Twins retain Kevin Slowey as a bullpen arm at this point, because that crop doesn't exactly inspire confidence. But I'll get into that more tomorrow morning. Let's get to today's lineups.
