Minnesota Twins OFs Alex Presley, Aaron Hicks and Darin Mastroianni are all competing for the starting center field job this spring. Manager Ron Gardenhire liked what he saw from Presley during his month-long audition at the end of last year. The team would like to see him be more aggressive on the bases this year, though, after stealing just one base in his 28 games. Presley has 20 stolen bases in 232 career games. He knows his success on the bases will probably have a direct effect on whether he wins the job, which is why he worked with Paul Molitor this spring. The Twins could use him in the leadoff spot, too.
