TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Robinson Cano rejoined the Yankees from the World Baseball Classic and got New York's only hit Thursday night in a 6-1 loss to Minnesota Twins on Thursday night.
Cano was picked as the MVP of the WBC after hitting .469 with two homers and six RBIs for the champion Dominican Republic.
Cano singled in the fourth inning off Twins starter Liam Hendriks. The All-Star second baseman also made an error.
Yankees reliever Mariano Rivera struck out three in one scoreless inning.
Drew Butera hit a three-run double in the Twins' five-run fourth.
Minnesota third base prospect Miguel Sano had a pair of singles in his first major league spring training game.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Dominican Republic is much more than a great place to vacation now (been there; loved it--highly recommend it). The small island nation is now home to the World Baseball Classic champions!
Puerto Rico never had a chance against the DR in San Francisco Tuesday night. Edwin Encarnacion got the scoring started with a two run double in the first, and that would end up being...
Dear madam or sir,If I were you, I’d buy one of those authentic Yankee Stadium $18 rain ponchos, the souped-up garbage bag liners, and wear it everywhere. Because vegetables could be flying, and some will be on target. Don't worry about tomatoes. But an acorn squash, that can really hurt.If I were you, I’d hire a taster. And a guy who carries caged canaries. And one of...
New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says shortstop Derek Jeter will play only in minor league spring training games for the rest of spring training.
The move could cut short how much time Jeter would miss if he starts the season on the 15-day disabled list. By not playing in major league exhibitions, the Yankees want to be able to backdate Jeter's start time on the...
Not the guy cut, but good for effect
The Twins made some cuts today. Most notable among them is outfielder Joe Benson. For more info, click on the link below for the Star Tribune report.

The New York Yankees continue to actively pursue help at
first and third base, according to Andy Martino of The New York Daily News.
This is so obvious it's hardly worth saying, but also was told that #Yankees still actively seeking 1B and 3B help.

Martino terms this news “obvious,” as the Yankees have been...
Derek Jeter's ankle will keep him out of Major League exhibition games for the rest of spring training. He will play only in minor league games the rest of the way out. The move comes after Jeter felt soreness in his ankle and an inflammation was discovered.
Craig Calcaterra of NBC Sports says the move to have Jeter play in minor league games could be strategic. By...
Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire taught his son, Toby, many things about the game of baseball. Recently, the Twins skipper gave his oldest child a different life lesson.
In a picture shared on Twitter by Toby's wife, Lindsay, Ron Gardenhire can be seen reflected in a mirror as he looks on while Toby holds a razor in his hands. The tweet says, "Father teaching son how to...
A familiar face may soon be rejoining the Yankees.
According to Trenton Thunder beat writer Josh Norris, former Yankee Chien-Ming Wang was visible at the Yankees’ spring training complex down in Tampa, Fla. this morning. However, Wang has not signed a contract with the team just yet. The Yankees had scouted Wang in the WBC, where he pitched well for his native Taiwan, going 1-0...
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Samuel Deduno entered spring training with an outside chance of making the Minnesota Twins' rotation. His performance at the World Baseball Classic might have given him an edge.
Deduno is scheduled to return to Twins spring training camp Thursday after helping the Dominican Republic beat Puerto Rico 3-0 in the championship game of the WBC. Deduno pitched...

AL East At A Glance
New York Yankees: A lot of writers and analysts are picking the Yankees to finish third, and in the most wide open division in baseball, it’s certainly a possibility. The injury to Curtis Granderson will keep him out till May, Mark Teixeira’s injury could possibly require season-ending surgery, and Alex Rodriguez will be out till the All Star break at best...
It seems like just yesterday the entire nation was in mourning as result of the horrific events that occured in Newtown, CT. Here we are a few months later and the events that occurred in December are still fresh in the public's mind. In a league wide effort to help support those who were affected by the shooting, MLB commissioner Bud Selig has decided that all 30 teams will...
Tony Pena passed around the shiny trophy and let all of his players offer their besitos, or little kisses. Robinson Cano passed around a phone as his teammates took turns receiving congratulations from Dominican Republic President Danilo Medina.
''We appreciate that from the president,'' Jose Reyes said. ''This win is all about the Dominican Republic. They...
Happy basketball day part 2! May today go a bit more smoothly than yesterday.
Fangraphs is the first place I’ve seen that doesn’t rate Miguel Sano as the Twins’ top prospect.
You have to dig deep during the tournament.
And another awful GIF from day one of the tournament. Ouch.
Lots of basketball, no important teams.
