After feeling discomfort on Friday, Perkins discontinued his Monday bullpen session after only five pitches due to continued discomfort. He's scheduled to play catch Friday and barring any setbacks, looks to throw off a mound Saturday. (Source: MLB.com)

Fantasy Impact: Perkins was an All Star in 2014 and has been one of the few bright spots on a beleaguered Twins team. After posting 70 saves in the past two seasons, the Twins are looking for Perkins to maintain his dominance in the closer role.

Fantasy Impact: There was no structural damage in his injuries, but he had to rest and rehab over the offseason to be fully ready for Spring Training. He had no setbacks this offseason, which is great but also scary. It is good because he will more than likely be ready for the season, but, because he didn't have surgery, he could be injured further. He is a cautious, yet quality, draft this season. Perkins had a 3.65 ERA with 34 saves last season.
