Twins reliever Tyler Duffey admitted it's a weird feeling not being in Minnesota Thursday for what was supposed to be the home opener. Instead, he's home in Texas.

Duffey talked to our Darren 'Doogie' Wolfson via Zoom about missing the game, his teammates, and a life milestone coming next week with his wife set to give birth to their first child.

Duffey threw four scoreless innings during Grapefruit League action, and was ready for the regular season to start on March 26. Now, he's playing catch with former teammate Ryan Pressly, plus pitching enough to keep somewhat ready, hoping that some sort of season will take place.

Duffey had a great 2019 season with his earned run average of 2.50 ranking best among Twins relievers and 20th among qualified MLB relievers. He signed a 1-year deal worth $1.2 million in the offseason.
