Bad news for Baker

The best spring of Scott Baker's major league career has hit a snag

And it's one that has the Minnesota Twins worried.

Baker is fighting the flu and the bug has caused him to miss his last two bullpen sessions. According to MLB.com's Kelly Thesier, Baker has thrown only a light bullpen session since his last start.

Manager Ron Gardenhire isn't sure if Baker will be able to stretch his pitch count enough to be ready to go opening day when the Twins face the Los Angeles Angels.

That's really a shame because Baker looked to be one of the favorites to take the ball in that game.
