It’s an extreme example, Brian Dozier concedes, but just the fact it would be possible bothers him. “Say it’s the bottom of the ninth, full count, bases loaded, and a guy needs to take a deep breath or gets the hiccups or something,” the Twins second baseman said Saturday. “Is that a walkoff?
A storm delayed Byron Buxton’s arrival, Phil Hughes was sidelined by a kidney stone and Addison Reed couldn’t make it on such short notice. Every other player on the Twins’ 40-man roster is in attendance at TwinsFest this weekend, except one. Miguel Sano remains at Twins camp in Fort Myers, Fla., putting his surgically repaired shin through daily workouts in hopes of being ready when the season opens March 29. He is also waiting to hear whether he will be eligible to play.
The Twins officially announced the signing of reliever Addison Reed to a two-year, $16.75 million contract. The signing was first reported Saturday. Buddy Boshers was designated for assignment to make room on the team's 40-man roster. Reed is a seven-year veteran who has pitched for the White Sox, Diamondbacks, Mets and Red Sox. In 410 major league games he is 18-21 with a 3.40 ERA and 125 saves, with 425 strikeouts and 103 walks in 402 innings.
New Twins RHP Michael Pineda, recovering from Tommy John, says he threw Wednesday for first time since surgery. 30 pitches from 60 feet, felt good. But he's not putting any target date on return other than "2018."

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
