A few pieces of news/information for you, all of which I’ll update on the site later:
* Dave Duncan said he does not expect Matt Clement to be ready to go on Opening Day. Said Clement really needs to build up his arm strength and is behind. So as of now it’s basically six guys for five spots to open the season.
* Adam Kennedy arrived at camp today and began working out. TLR characterized Kennedy as the leader to be the primary 2B man, but no guarantee — said his lead on the field is definitely slimmer than last year. Kennedy said he had no problem with that.
* Chris Perez will stop throwing out of the windup. He has previously pitched out of the windup and the stretch, but he will no longer. Perez, Adam Ottavino, P.J. Walters and Mitchell Boggs all threw to hitters today.
