Reds-Rays from Port Charlotte
Sorry to be a little tardy today. Just catching up on some stuff. No need to post the lineup since the game is already underway here, but a couple notes quickly.
- Edwin Encarnacion was in the lineup today as the DH. He took full infield today and he said right after that he felt good. If he passes the tests of throwing and hitting today, with no problems after the fact, you’ll probably see him back at third very soon.
- Alex Gonzalez was also DHing… in a Minor League game back in Sarasota. It’s the first time he’s really tested the hamstring that’s kept him out of action.
- Forecasts call for rain in Sarasota tomorrow. Dusty Baker said he heard the weatherman say there was 100 percent chance of rain. “That’s pretty high,” Baker said.
- Starting pitchers for the next few days, weather permitting: Bronson Arroyo (Sunday); Johnny Cueto (Monday); Micah Owings (Tuesday); Aaron Harang (Wednesday); Edinson Volquez (Thursday)… May not mean anything, but anyone else notice that Homer Bailey’s not getting another start?
