Target Field is covered in snow and the Twins play tomorrow

40 Comments

Here in Minnesota we’re known for living with some pretty brutal weather, but heavy snow in the middle of April is a bit much even for us.

Luckily the Twins are off today, but they begin a three-game series with the Mets at Target Field tomorrow night and … well, this is what the ballpark looked like this afternoon:

It’s currently 34 degrees and still snowing here and the forecast for tomorrow is a balmy 36 degrees with more snow. Because the Mets won’t be coming back to Minnesota again this season canceling the game could be tricky and it’s not supposed to be a whole lot warmer over the weekend.

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
