Dodgers bundled up for ugly-weather game at Target Field

9 Comments

Tuesday’s game between the Dodgers and Twins had to be postponed due to a wintry mix of weather in and around Minneapolis’ Target Field. The two teams are playing through on Wednesday night despite there being more ugliness in the forecast, and the club from Los Angeles is breaking out the ski masks …

The answer to that final tweet: first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.

This is the Los Angeles Dodgers’ third-ever regular-season trip to Minnesota.

The Baltimore Orioles have claimed utilityman Jace Peterson off waivers from the Yankees.

Peterson has played in three games this season and has been DFA’d twice. He had no place to play in New York but perhaps the O’s can use his versatility. While mostly a second baseman in his career he’s appeared at every position except pitcher and catcher at some point along the way, and that’s useful. More useful for a team that isn’t going anyplace like Baltimore, I presume. Saves ’em on gas money from Norfolk when someone gets an owie.

To make room for Peterson the O’s moved Gabriel Ynoa, who is suffering from shoulder inflammation, from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list. Ynoa has yet to appear in a game this season.
