MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — When the Twins take on the Brewers this weekend, the pitchers take the spotlight as they have to step into the batter’s box.

“Pitchers don’t work on hitting enough to be successful hitters,” Twins pitching coach Rick Anderson said. “But they all think they can hit, just like hitters think they can pitch.”

For Drew Butera, it’s a chance for teammates to back up their big talk.

“It’s always fun to see those guys out there with a bat in their hands,” he said. “They talk a big game off of the field, but it’s always fun to see what they can do on it.”

Strength and conditioning coordinator Perry Castellano just hopes no one gets injured.

“This is my biggest concern over the course of the season,” he said. “They don’t pick up a bat, and then they all think they’re home-run hitters.”
