Minnesota intends for Sano to begin the season as the starting right fielder, GM Terry Ryan told MLB.com. "He's bought in," Ryan said. "But we've certainly asked that question. You have to be on board with it and he's on board."
Pressly will enter spring training with a chance for a high-profile role in the Minnesota bullpen, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "I don't think people realize how well (Pressly) was throwing the ball before he got hurt (strained latissimus) last year, and now he's healthy," said manager Paul Molitor.
