Twins' Joe Mauer: Will wear sunglasses to try to improve pitch tracking
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joe Mauer will try hitting with sunglasses for the first time during spring training in an attempt to improve his pitch tracking, Brian Murphy of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Although Mauer hasn't had a concussion since 2013, he has still experienced blurred vision at the plate from time to time. "There are so many different symptoms. For me it was lighting, I couldn't really pick up the ball. It was blurry at times. Where I am here versus last year at this time, I can tell my workouts are better," Mauer stated in an interview. The 32-year-old hit .248/.316/.354 in day games and .276/.352/.396 in night games in 2015, so it appears this move does have potential to help him improve at the dish in 2016.

Twins' Carlos Quentin: Signs minor league deal with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlos Quentin signed a minor league deal with the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Quentin spent brief stints with the Mariners and Braves organizations early last season before announcing his retirement in May, but he'll return to the game in hopes of cracking the Twins Opening Day roster as a DH option off the bench. The 33-year-old hit just .177 in his last taste of Major League action back in 2014, but he slashed .275/.363/.493 for the Padres just three seasons ago. Quentin is somewhat of a longshot to make the 25-man roster, and he'd likely return to retirement rather than toil in Triple-A, should he fail to make the cut.

Twins' Miguel Sano: On board with move to outfield
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Minnesota intends for Sano to begin the season as the starting right fielder, GM Terry Ryan told MLB.com. "He's bought in," Ryan said. "But we've certainly asked that question. You have to be on board with it and he's on board."

Sano has been working on his outfield defense in his native Dominican Republic, and the Twins say they'll bring Torii Hunter in as a special assistant in spring training to help him learn the new position. It may have looked like a ploy to increase Trevor Plouffe's trade value early in the offseason, but Sano's move to the outfield looks set to happen with the Twins recently agreeing to a one-year, $7.25 million deal with Plouffe. Of course, Sano will still have to demonstrate he can play the outfield in spring training and not be a major liability on defense.
