Twins Spring Training 2012, Grapefruit League Schedule: Two Games Remain Before MLB Season

The 2012 Major League Baseball season is right around the corner for the Minnesota Twins, but before the festivities can begin, a pair of Grapefruit League games stand in the way.

The Twins will face the Tampa Bay Rays in a two-day series to wrap up Spring Training on Monday, with the second game schedule for Tuesday afternoon at the same time.

Looking to make a mark in the Central Division after a forgettable 2011 campaign, all eyes in Minnesota are set squarely on first baseman Justin Morneau, who has battled injuries over the last few seasons. Morneau, viewed by many as the single biggest key to the Twins' success this year, appears to be healthy enough to flash the skills that made him an AL MVP winner a few years ago.

Here's a look at Minnesota's schedule to close out Spring Training 2012:

Monday, April 2nd: vs. Tampa Bay, Port Charlotte, FL - 1:05 pm ET

Tuesday, April 3rd: vs. Tampa Bay, Fort Myers, FL - 1:05 pm ET
