Thorpe has left camp to manage personal matters

Betsy Helfand of the St Paul Pioneer Press has reported via Twitter that lefty starter Lewis Thorpe has left the Minnesota Twins Spring Training camp. The reason that the Australian pitcher is to tend to personal matters, which were undisclosed. The team has said they do not have a timeline for his return. Thorpe is a strong candidate vying for the last open spot in the starting rotation for the 2020 campaign. Although it is understandable that he is missing time in camp due to personal reasons, any time missed may hinder his chances at claiming a rotation spot. Ben has more on the battle for the fifth rotation spot here: The candidates for the Twins’ fifth rotation spot

Kepler to miss time with minor back injury

Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported on Twitter today that outfielder Max Kepler will be missing a few days of game action. It's reported that Kepler has a minor upper back injury that is the cause for being sidelined. It doesn't seem to be a major issue and he's expected to be back in action within a few days. Kepler battled a shoulder issue for much of September last season, but it does not seem to be related to the current minor injury.
