Defense not a concern with Florimon but Twins hope his bat comes around

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- When the Minnesota Twins departed Fort Myers for the regular season, they did so knowing the same thing they always have about Pedro Florimon. The team's starting shortstop "can pick it," as manager Ron Gardenhire likes to say of the Dominican Republic native. But can he hit? "Sometimes, he's good," Gardenhire said. "Sometimes he's not so good, offensively. So...
