Twins: Albers outduels Shields in major league debut
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Andrew Albers still remembers exactly what he was thinking about as he drove the 40 hours from Arizona to Florida for one last chance at being a big league ballplayer.
“I just wanted a shot,” he said.
The left-hander made the most of his tryout with the Minnesota Twins that day two years ago, earning a minor league contract.
