Gibson pitches two solid innings in Twins' loss

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Joe Mauer was impressed with the Twins pitching staff Sunday despite Minnesota’s 10-7 loss in 10 innings to the Tampa Bay Rays.

In his first spring training appearance, Mauer caught Kyle Gibson, a 2009 first-round draft pick out of the University of Missouri hoping to make the Twins’ rotation coming off Tommy John elbow-reconstruction surgery.

Gibson struck out two and gave up one hit in two innings.

Mauer went 0-for-2 with a walk. He is scheduled to leave camp after this week to play catcher for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic.
