Scott Baker Shelled

Twins starting pitchers have all had generally phenomenal spring trainings... until today. Scott Baker got his world rocked by the Rays allowing 12 hits and 8 runs in just 2.2 innings walking one while striking out three. I'm hearing rumors he could've suffered a whiplash injury in today's game...

The Twins scheduled opening day starter had been on a roll along with the rest of his rotation mates this spring, posting an FIP line of 19.1IP/1HR/2BB/19K with a 0.93 WHIP and an OBA of just .219.

While his FIP line won't be hurt by his performance today, clearly something wasn't quite right. And while spring training stats should always be taken with a 10lb bag of salt, the performance in such close proximity to opening day should be taken note of.
