Twins' Brian Dozier: Heating up after slow start to spring

Dozier went 3-for-3 with a double in Saturday's spring training loss to Boston. He's hitting .250 with a home run in 20 at-bats this spring.

Dozier had a slow start to the spring as he was 2-for-17 before Sunday. He hit his first home run Saturday, so it looks like he's warming up in time for Opening Day. Dozier is healthy and assured of a starting job, so his stats don't mean too much this spring. It's not clear where he'll bat in the order, however, as he could remain the leadoff hitter or bat lower in the order. The Twins may not make a decision about the top of their lineup until late in spring training.
