Twins' J.T. Chargois: Quest to win bullpen role starts off slowly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chargois gave up a run with two hits over one inning in his spring debut Saturday.

Chargois will compete for a bullpen role this spring. He had a 1.29 ERA with 41 strikeouts against just eight walks in 35.0 innings last year at Triple-A, but struggled in the majors with a 4.70 ERA and ugly 17:12 K:BB ratio. With a high 90s fastball and strong strikeout rate (10.5 K/9 at Triple-A), Chargois could be a dark horse candidate to take over the closer role if Brandon Kintzler struggles and Glen Perkins fails to return from injury.

Twins' Byungho Park: Homers in second spring game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park went 1-for-2 with a home run in Saturday's spring training loss to the Red Sox.

Park is 2-for-4 with a double and home run in his first two games. Park will need to have a stellar spring to win the DH job over Kennys Vargas, but he's at least off to a hot start.

Twins' Phil Hughes: First outing since July surgery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hughes gave up two runs over two innings with four hits allowed in his spring debut Saturday. It was his first game since season-ending surgery to relieve thoracic outlet syndrome in July. "Felt like it had been 8 1/2 months," Hughes told MLB.com.

While Hughes' numbers were not great, it was encouraging to see him pitch without any health concerns. Hughes had a rib under his right shoulder blade removed during the surgery and later said he'd been experiencing discomfort since 2015. He also suffered a broken leg from a batted ball in July and a later examination revealed the shoulder issue. With all the injuries , Hughes struggled and finished with a 5.95 ERA last season. If he can stay healthy, Hughes could be a bounce-back candidate thanks to his stellar control.

Twins' Byungho Park: Two hits in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park went 2-for-2 in his spring training debut Friday as the DH in Minnesota's 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay.

Park was designated for assignment in February, but no other team claimed him and he was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester. However, he's in big league camp and has a chance to win the DH job over Kennys Vargas.

Twins' Mason Melotakis: Improved, but not yet throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melotakis (oblique) has shown improvement, but is not yet throwing, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The 25-year-old was held out of pitching activities this week, a trend which could continue in the coming days. Melotakis is competing for a spot in the Twins' bullpen after registering a 2.97 ERA and a 42:12 K:BB ratio last season with Double-A Chattanooga.
