Notes: Along with the Rays, the Twins are one of only two remaining undefeated MLB teams...Byron Buxton, who’s been limited to designated hitter duties so far this season, is notably absent from Minnesota’s lineup...Maeda is making his first regular season start since August 21, 2021 (Tommy John surgery). He stretched out to as many as 75 pitches during the Grapefruit League.

Pregame Roster Moves: LHP Braxton Garrett and UTIL Garrett Hampson recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville and LHP Daniel Castano selected from Jacksonville; RHP Johnny Cueto (right biceps tightness) placed on 15-day injured list and INF Joey Wendle (right intercostal strain) placed on 10-day injured list; RHP Jeff Lindgren designated for assignment

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: None

Additional Notes: Tough break for Lindgren, who just made his major league debut on Monday. He’s likely to clear waivers and remain in the Marlins organization...This is the lowest spot in the batting order that Segura has occupied as a Marlin (including both regular season and Spring Training games).
