Minnesota Twins SS Pedro Florimon (appendix) is scheduled to play in a minor league game Friday, March 14, and he's been taking batting practice and fielding groundballs for the last week. He faced live pitching Thursday, March 13. However, Florimon may not be ready for opening day. INFs Eduardo Escobar, Jason Bartlett and Danny Santana are candidates to take Florimon's place.
Fantasy Tip: If the Twins are playing it cautious, they'll probably sit Florimon out to start the year. His replacement won't be worth a roster spot on your team, and Florimon should only be looked at in AL leagues.
