Opening Day roster projection, second guess
Starting pitchers (5)
Relief pitchers (7)
* Yep, only one change, and that’s the obvious one, bringing in D.Reyes. If anything, some of my opinions got stronger. It’s very clear to me that, barring a surprise, the Opening Day starting infield is set and Mather will go as an infielder. It’s looking a LOT like a four-man outfield rotation with Ludwick/Ankiel/Duncan/Rasmus all getting significant time. That means, again, that I could see an extra infielder over Barton, but I’m not expecting it.
* I still think they’re going to take a long man as the 12th guy, and the Reyes addition makes that a stronger opinion. Too many short relievers not to have an innings guy.
I’ll check in with y’all from Kissimmee tomorrow.
