Edgar Ibarra is expected to throw his first bullpen session Sunday.

Ibarra was diagnosed with Hepatitis B last month and has been taking it easy thus far in camp. The bullpen will mark the beginning of Ibarra ramping up his activities as he tries to catch up. The 24-year-old was lights out last season, posting a 1.93 ERA between Double-A and Triple-A, and he could still win a job in the Twins' bullpen with a strong spring.

Edgar Ibarra has been diagnosed with Hepatitis B and will take it easy early in Twins camp.

Ibarra is not contagious, so he'll remain Ft. Myers, Florida with his Twins teammates and try to get better with rest. The 24-year-old left-hander had a 1.93 ERA in 60 2/3 innings last summer in the minor leagues and was hoping to be considered for a big league bullpen job.

Twins purchased the contract of LHP Edgar Ibarra from Triple-A Rochester.

This move protects Ibarra from hitting free agency and allows the Twins three more years to work on Ibarra's control. The 24-year-old southpaw registered a smooth 1.93 ERA over 60 2/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A this past season. He misses a lot of bats, but a 4.3 BB/9 rate in the minors isn't going to cut it because Ibarra isn't a strikeout machine.
