Quick update: Wilson back, many gone
A few things to update upon my arrival at camp this morning:
- First, Preston Wilson is in the starting lineup for today’s game against the Astros, though he’s not in the outfield — he’s the designated hitter.
- Second, no Adam Kennedy yet, and Kennedy isn’t listed on the travel roster for Fort Lauderdale tomorrow.
- Third, there are a bunch of cuts today — at least eight, based on how many lockers have been cleared out. It’s not officially announced yet, but it’s safe to say that if your locker has been cleared out, you’re headed over to Minor League camp. Pitchers Chris Lambert, Mike Parisi, Mike Sillman and Mark Worrell are gone, as are catchers Michel Hernandez, Ryan Christianson, Danilo Sanchez and Bryan Anderson. That’s not necessarily all the moves; we could have more names announced when they officially release the list, but those are the ones who are gone now.
I’ll have more on all of it as the day goes on.
