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 Braves claimed lefty reliever Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
