Twins-Rays rained out
Deduno is scheduled to return to Minnesota's spring training camp Thursday after helping the Dominican Republic beat Puerto Rico 3-0 in the championship game of the WBC. Deduno pitched five innings of two-hit ball to earn the win.
With less than two weeks until the start of regular season, the Twins now will figure out how to fit Deduno into exhibition games as he rejoins the competition for the fifth spot in the rotation.
The Twins and Tampa Bay Rays were rained out Wednesday.
