Twins send five to Minors

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Twins announced prior to Friday's game against the Phillies that they outrighted outfielder Garrett Jones to Triple-A Rochester. They also reassigned left-handed pitchers Ricky Barrett and Randy Kiesler, and infielders Randy Ruiz and Tommy Watkins to Minor League camp.

The Twins now have 35 players in camp, including four non-roster invitees: 16 pitchers, four catchers, seven infielders, and eight outfielders.
