• Antony said he spoke with general manager Terry Ryan for about 30 minutes on the phone while en route to Florida Auto Exchange Stadium on Saturday. Ryan is expected to begin a six-week radiation treatment program soon, but he stopped by his office at Target Field a few times this week and is doing well, Antony said.
"He didn't indicate whether or not he would be paying us a visit [in Florida during Spring Training], but I think he's pleased with the progress," Antony added.
• Left-hander Edgar Ibarra is still undergoing blood tests as the Twins doctors look into "a little bit of a medical condition that's not an injury," Antony said. Antony added that the team's doctors told him Ibarra did not have Hepatitis B, and it's too soon to predict when he'll be able to pitch in a game.
"Right now, we're not too concerned about that," Antony said. "I know he'd love to get out there, but right now we want to make sure he's healthy and check out all that stuff."
• Right-hander Kyle Gibson is scheduled to pitch against the Phillies on Sunday, Antony said.
• Right-hander Matt Guerrier could pitch in a game as soon as Tuesday, Gardenhire said. Guerrier is working his way back from mid-August surgery to repair the flexor mass in his right elbow and could still break camp with the Twins.
"He's a reliever. All he's got to do is be able to go back out there for an inning or so. We'll see," Gardenhire said. "We like him. Just see how he does, see how his arm comes along and go from there."
• Don't expect to see outfielders Oswaldo Arcia (stomach virus) and Aaron Hicks (right elbow discomfort) in a game until Tuesday at the earliest. The Twins are "just being a little cautious" with Hicks, according to Antony. Hicks has said he feels fine when he throws and feels "just a little tightness" when he swings.
