Tuesday afternoon tidbits: Pineiro looks likely to miss next start
Greetings to all. The weather forecast has been dicey, but as of right now there’s no tarp on the field and I am maintaining optimism.
Also, a personal note to friends/family — I was without a phone for a couple days, but I have one again. If you tried to reach me to no avail, that’s why. Sorry.
* If I had to guess, I would definitely guess that Joel Pineiro will not start Saturday. He said he was still too sore today to throw off a mound if he needed to, and tomorrow would be his bullpen day. Pineiro maintains strong optimism, but it’s very hard to envision him making that start. The good thing is that they could DL him, use either Parisi or call up Reyes for that start, and have him eligible to come off the DL for the next time through the rotation.
* Ludwick is not in the lineup tonight, but TLR said he’ll be in there pretty much the rest of the homestand. He basically said, for now Ludwick is playing the best, so he’ll play the most. But everybody is going to play, and with Chacon having a dramatic L-R split, this was the good night to get all the other guys in there.
