Quick round of ST news bits that we haven’t touched on yet:
– All continues to be well for Masahiro Tanaka this spring. He threw another trouble-free bullpen session yesterday and the word on the street is that he will make his ST debut a week from today. Nothing official from the team there yet, but keep your eyes and ears peeled.
– The team confirmed that Carlos Beltran will indeed make his 2015 debut tomorrow and he will do so in right field. Guess that elbow is feeling OK.
– Brendan Ryan is saying he feels good working his way back from a back strain, but the team had him take a day off yesterday after he told them he felt sore. Something’s not adding up there.
– More early starter announcements, courtesy of Chad Jennings: Bryan Mitchell and Chris Capuano get the split-squad games tomorrow, Scott Baker will go Saturday. Reminder that Esmil Rogers is the scheduled starter today.…
