Hendriks to start against Rays on Sunday

|

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Right-hander Liam Hendriks is scheduled to start the Grapefruit League home opener against the Rays at Hammond Stadium on Sunday, according to Twins manager Ron Gardenhire.

Hendriks, 24, is set to pitch a day after right-hander Kevin Correia starts against the Orioles in the Grapefruit League opener in Sarasota.

Hendriks, who is competing for a spot in the rotation, posted a 5.59 ERA in 16 starts with the Twins and a 2.20 ERA in 16 starts at Triple-A Rochester last season.

The Twins are also set to play in an instraquad game on Sunday morning at 9 a.m. CT. The game is expected to be six innings and will feature P.J. Walters as well as B.J. Hermsen, Trevor May, Alex Meyer, Caleb Thielbar, Jose Berrios and Andrew Albers.

"A lot of the kids are going to be throwing in the intrasquad game," Gardenhire said. "So that'll be good."
