FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The majority of the Twins' pitchers and catchers made stops inside the clubhouse at Hammond Stadium on Thursday morning, dropping off their stuff at their lockers and many of them getting in a light informal workout before Friday's first official workout.
But while many pitchers and catchers made visits to the complex, they were not required to check in at the stadium on Thursday. They are only required to be in attendance for Friday morning's first official workout.
Twins general manager Bill Smith said that right now only one pitcher is expected to report late to camp and that's right-hander Yorman Bazardo, who is a non-roster invitee. Smith said that it's a travel issue for Bazardo, a Venezuelan native, and not a visa issue that is delaying the pitcher's arrival to camp.
