Joe Torre pregame (with audio)

Joe Torre said before the game that Melky Cabrera will play left field as long as Hideki Matsui is out.

“We were looking for at-bats for him and the at-bats found him,” Torre said.

Darrell Rasner’s next turn will be skipped and he will be in the bullpen. They don’t need a fifth starter until April 21 and there’s a good chance Chien-Ming Wang will be ready by then.

Other notes: Alex Rodriguez shared the AL Player of the Week award with Vlad Guerrero. … Matsui is traveling with the team but will likely be sent to Florida by the end of the week. … Mitch Seone, one of the BP pitchers, took a ball off the head during BP and was helped off the field. … T.C. The Bear, the Minnesota mascot, is on the infield with some people in fish costumes. I’m so not making that up.

Here is Joe’s pregame session. I can’t speak to the quality because we were in the dugout and it was a bit noisy.
