Cue music... It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Most MLB players are already at their respective spring training sites, but they haven’t actually needed to be, or started official workouts until today. Today is one of my favorite days of the year—pitchers and catchers officially report to Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers.

This is the formal start of Spring Training, and games will begin soon enough. For now, get ready for lots of report saying that guys are “looking great” and “in the best shape of his life.” The position players will be joining the pitchers and catchers in just under a week, on the 17th. All of the information you may need—or want—is available from the Twins right here and we’ll be sure to bring you any significant news or information as we come across it.

The Twins officially kick off spring games with a scrimmage against the Gophers on February 21st.
