Hendriks, Worley, De Vries to pitch in Orioles series

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Twins announced their rotation for their upcoming three-game series against the Orioles. Right-hander Liam Hendriks will start on Friday and will be followed by fellow right-handers Vance Worley on Saturday and Cole De Vries on Sunday.

Worley, who took the mound against the Tigers on Opening Day on Monday, will be starting on normal rest because of Tuesday's off-day, while De Vries is getting pushed back a day because he left his final Spring Training start on Friday with forearm soreness.

De Vries, who had an impressive Spring Training with a 0.53 ERA in 17 innings, threw a bullpen session on Wednesday, but it didn't go as well as he hoped, according to Twins manager Ron Gardenhire.

"He threw a 'pen today, and it just went OK," Gardenhire said. "It wasn't great. He'll throw another one on Friday, and if anything happens, we'll have to do something."
