Full Squad Spring Training Begins For Twins


The Minnesota Twins have been present down in Fort Myers, Florida now for the past five days. Up until Friday however, only pitchers and catchers were required to report to the complex. Despite the fact that nearly everyone on the 40 man roster had showed up, today marks the first full squad workout. With games scheduled for next week, the club will hit full stride.

Pitchers and catchers have been throwing bullpens all week, while position players reporting early have been getting plenty of work in as well. However, with today being the first full squad workout, Paul Molitor address the entire team for the first time.

Yesterday Molitor mentioned that both he and Terry Ryan would be addressing the club, with the message still up in the air. Considering the club is coming off of four straight 90 loss seasons, and now has experienced some turnover this offseason, an initial message carried the utmost importance. Expect Molitor to have a clear direction for the Twins during Spring Training, and to work towards a turnaround in 2015.

As the full squad workouts get underway, the newly renovated Hammond Stadium and complex will be put to full use. With the back fields showcasing minor league talent, and the Twins taking over much of the more prominent practice areas, there will be plenty going on.

Check back later today for the sights and sounds for day five of Minnesota Twins Spring Training.
