The team announced the decision Friday afternoon, four hours before the scheduled first pitch. No makeup date was set. Forecasts called for snow overnight, with potential for more than a foot of accumulation throughout Saturday and Sunday.
One benefit of the bad weather this month for the Twins has been the shortening of their rotation, allowing right-hander Phil Hughes to take his time in recovery from a strained left oblique muscle. He was on track to pitch on Friday.
The Twins already had one game postponed this homestand against the Seattle Mariners, moving it to May 14.
