Wednesday’s lineup vs. White Sox
*Ramon Hernandez is back in camp after being away for two days. Hernandez went to Ft. Lauderdale to take his U.S. citizenship exam. He said he passed without issue. All that stands between him and being an American is the swearing-in ceremony. Hernandez is a native of Venezuela.
“I already live here,” Hernandez said Wednesday. “My wife is a citizen. My kids are citizens. I’m the only one left.”
*Dusty Baker remains firmly in the corner of pitcher Homer Bailey, who will start later today. Here is a small sample of Baker’s feelings on Bailey:
“There were some great pitchers I’ve seen that started out a whole lot worse than Homer,” Baker said. “He’s got a chance to be an ace, I think.”
