Bollinger notes that the Twins have shut down Kyle Waldrop for a few days with elbow soreness. It sounded like Waldrop was in line to make the team's bullpen, so it's a tough break both for him and a team that doesn't need more uncertainty in their relief corps.

The Twins also have a split-squad game against the Blue Jays, but that will be predominantly minor-leaguers. If we get any particulars on that one, we will post them.
