Worth noting

|
• First baseman Justin Morneau was scratched from the lineup with mild back tightness shortly before Thursday night's game. Manager Ron Gardenhire wasn't overly concerned and said Morneau was willing to play. "But this is not something you want to mess with with two days left in Spring Training," the manager said.

• There has still not been an announcement on whether right-hander Tim Wood (strained rotator cuff) will open the season on the disabled list. "Wood is still on hold," said general manager Terry Ryan. "We'll make that decision here in the next couple days."

• The Twins had just five hits Thursday night, but Gardenhire said that's not a concern. "I think they're all worn out a little bit now," he said. "We've played a lot of baseball. We've had a lot of travel. Some of our big boys are a little gassed. But we're getting there. We'll get back up north and I think everything will be refreshed."
