Johnny Monell went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in the Orioles' win over the Twins on Wednesday.

Monell struck out in three of his first four at-bats this spring, but the 27-year-old couldn't miss on Wednesday. Monell stroked two singles to go with his three-run home run off Jared Burton in the third inning. The catcher, who was acquired from the Giants in November, has always been a threat at the plate. If the Orioles can stomach his defense behind it, he could find his way onto the Opening Day roster as backup to Matt Wieters.
