GM Ryan updates Twins' injuries

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Twins general manager Terry Ryan gave several injury updates prior to Tuesday's game against the Orioles at Ed Smith Stadium.

Infielder Sean Burroughs, who was struck on the left forearm by a pitch in Monday's game against the Rays, experienced soreness on Tuesday and was scheduled to have an X-ray taken.

Outfielder Trevor Plouffe, who suffered a strained right hamstring on March 18, made it through his workout without incident on Tuesday. He remains on track to play in a Minor League game on Wednesday.

Left fielder Josh Willingham is fine after tweaking his ankle prior to Monday's game against the Rays. He wasn't in the lineup against the Orioles, but could return to action as early as Wednesday against the Phillies.

There's still no timetable for right-hander Jason Marquis making his return to Twins camp, as he's still tending to his 7-year-old daughter, who was seriously injured in a bicycle accident last week. But Ryan said that Marquis will likely pitch in a Minor League game when he gets back, as he's been throwing bullpens back home in New York.

Additionally, right-hander Carl Pavano tossed six innings in a Minor League game on Tuesday at the club's Spring Training complex in Fort Myers. Pavano allowed one hit and walked one while striking out six over six scoreless frames against the Orioles' Class-A Frederick affiliate. Ryan Doumit also went 1-for-2 with a walk in that game.
