First of all, don’t forget to scroll down to this week’s Lucky Seven and answer the questions.
Anyway, here are today’s pregame news tidbits.
* Troy Cate has been optioned to Memphis, and Kelvin Jimenez called up. Cate wasn’t available today after his stint yesterday, so they brought in Jimenez for depth. Mike Maroth is available in the bullpen, since he won’t start till the end of the week or the weekend.
* Rolen is back in the lineup, batting sixth and playing third base. It’s an all right-handed lineup, with Ludwick in LF for Duncan, Taguchi in CF for Edmonds, and Ryan at 2B for Kennedy.
