Rain doesn't wash away workouts

|

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Twins were forced to change their workout plans on Thursday because of rain, but manager Ron Gardenhire said everyone was still able to get their work in.

All 16 pitchers scheduled to throw bullpen sessions, including Mike Pelfrey, Liam Hendriks, Tim Wood, Anthony Slama and Trevor May, were able to throw off the mound near the club's Minor League complex.

The catchers -- and the other position players who are already in camp -- hit in the batting cages while pitchers were able to work on their bunting.

"We got just about everything done except for some of the fundamentals, like covering first base," Gardenhire said. "But we do that a lot so we're OK."
