The Twins placed righthanded starting pitcher Scott Baker on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 27 with right elbow tendinitis.  He will miss at least 1 start.  The Twins also optioned righthanded starting pitcher Jason Marquis to AA-New Britain to get a couple starts before rejoining the team.  He’s been away from the team for the past 2 weeks attending to his injured 7-year daughter.

The Twins beat the Fort Myers Miracle 8-7 Wednesday in exhibition play.  Nick Blackburn threw 5 innings with 3 earned runs allowed and both Joe Mauer and Sean Burroughs had 2 hits apiece.

The Twins begin the 2012 regular season at Baltimore Friday at 2:05, pregame on WJON at 1:35.  Righthander Carl Pavano gets the start on the mound for the Twins and righthander Jake Arrieta toes the rubber for the Orioles.
