PREGAME NOTES:

  • Congratulations to the greatest closer of all-time, Mariano Rivera, for being named the AL's Player of the Week.
    Jorge Posada remains on target to rejoin the Yankees later this week after going 1 for 3 with an RBI and making a handful of throws to bases during an extended Spring Training game this afternoon.
  • Andy Pettitte is a lifetime 8-5, 3.52 ERA, 1.33 WHIP in 17 starts against the Twins, including 1-0, 0.00 ERA, 0.83 WHIP in one start against them in 2007.
    Livan Hernandez is a lifetime 0-3, 6.08 ERA, 1.77 WHIP in 4 starts against the Yanks. He is 4-0, 4.23 ERA, 1.51 WHIP in 6 starts at the Metrodome this season.
