The Twins will report early for training camp — at least by Minnesota Twins standards — with pitchers slated to report on Saturday, Feb. 18, with their first workout slated for Sunday, Feb. 19. The balance of the squad is scheduled to report on Thursday, Feb. 23, with full-squad workouts beginning on Friday, Feb. 24.

The Twins will be sticking close to home and the Gulf Coast, with virtually every game taking place in the area or Lakeland save a March 17 match against the Miami Marlins in Jupiter and a March 25 game against St. Louis at Roger Dean Stadium. That means lots of games against local team, including five visits by Tampa Bay (with nine games in all against the Rays) and six games against the Boston Red Sox.

The Twins’ 2012 Spring Training Schedule concludes with a home game on Wednesday, April 4 against the Florida State League’s Fort Myers Miracle.
