Tuesday's Bullpen Compeition

There are eight pitchers scheduled to travel with the Twins up to Dunedin today. Pelfrey, Pressly, Roenicke, Wood, Slama, Perdomo and Tonkin.

Pelfrey is getting his first start. Except for Tonkin, all the relievers have worked an inning in one of the previous three games.

Unless Pelfrey goes more than two innings, its likely the Twins will have at least one of the relievers extend to two innings. Pressly, Wood and Perdomo all pitched scoreless innings in their last outing. Roeniecke gave up  run on two hits and a walk in an inning. Slama was the only one not to complete a full inning, being lifted after giving up 2 hits, 2 walk and 3 runs (1 earned) while getting 2 outs.

Pressly, picked up in the rule 5 draft in December is perhaps the most interesting candidate. He pitched a perfect inning last time out.
