Injuries, injuries, injuries ...

Dennys Reyes (shoulder inflammation) threw a 35-pitch simulated game Tuesday afternoon and said he has no pain in his shoulder. If Reyes comes to the park tomorrow with no soreness, manager Ron Gardenhire said the left-hander would likely be activated rather than go on a rehab assignment.

Rondell White (torn calf) will start playing in extended spring training games in the next couple days, Gardenhire said.

And Glen Perkins started his throwing program today. The process will be slow, throwing from very short distances at first.

Be back shortly with lineups ...
