Twins 8, Red Sox 3

Associated Press  |  Last updated March 29, 2013
Minnesota's Cole DeVries came out after three hitless innings due to a sore right forearm as the Twins beat the Boston Red Sox 8-3 Friday. DeVries, scheduled to make his first start of the season on April 6 at Baltimore, allowed one earned run during 17 innings in spring training and held batters to a .071 average. Pitching coach Rick Anderson said it appeared the soreness was a muscle issue. DeVries was to be reevaluated Saturday. Red Sox starter Ryan Dempster gave up three hits and four walks in four innings with four strikeouts. Twins first baseman Justin Morneau did not play because of tightness in his back and likely won't play Saturday, but Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said he will be ready for Monday's opener against Detroit and Justin Verlander. ''His concussions and all that he had experienced is not an issue at all,'' general manager Terry Ryan said. ''He does have a little bit of a stiff back, but I suspect you're going to see him in the opening-day lineup.'' NOTES: Red Sox manager John Farrell said Boston likely will wait until Sunday's deadline to set its opening-day roster. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. could be making the team but is not on the 40-man roster. Farrell said 1B Mike Carp and OF Daniel Nava will make the roster. ... Toronto claimed RHP Alex Burnett off waivers from the Twins. ... Minnesota RHP Tim Wood was placed on the 15-day DL with a right rotator cuff strain, a moved retroactive to March 24. He was 2-1 with a 4.91 ERA in nine spring training outings. The Twins also reassigned RHP Rich Harden and LHP Rafael Perez to minor-league camp. ... Twins reliever Casey Fien struck out three during the fourth inning. ... Minnesota's Wilkin Ramirez was 2 for 4 and raised his spring training average to .415.
