The Minnesota Twins are set for their fourth day of preseason summer camp today at Target Field. New third baseman Josh Donaldson says he has no second thoughts about playing during the health pandemic. He says his job is to play baseball and it is one of the things he loves most, so playing is something he is going to do. Donaldson says he spent much of the “stay-at-home” time by working out and trying to improve certain skilisets. He says he has been on postseason teams in seven of his last eight seasons, so his off-seasons have been shorter than usual, so having some extra time to work on things was a positive coming from this situation. He says the Twins will have to be ready to go from the start, because a 60-game regular season will open the door for lesser teams to potentially have a hot month and make the playoffs. Donaldson was one of the bigger offseason moves the Twins have made in recent years, signing the 2015 American League M-V-P winner to a four-year, 92-million-dollar deal in January. He hit 37 home runs for the Atlanta Braves last season.
A star player for the Twins has tested positive for the coronavirus. The Twins have announced that star Miguel Sano has tested positive and will be sidelined indefinitely. Sano said in a video on the team’s social media that he feels fme and will be back as soon as he can.
