Sloppy Saturday

Miguel Tejada and Ramon Hernandez had two errors apiece in yesterday’s split squad loss to the Dodgers.

Says Sam:

“We were awfully sloppy today,” manager Sam Perlozzo said. “I know it’s late and guys are kind of anxious. They’ve had a tough schedule. So we’ll write it off to the schedule and see if we can get them on track tomorrow.”

More cuts were made today.

Brandon Fahey, Hayden Penn and Kurt Birkins will be starting the season in Norfolk. Interestingly, Birkins will go back to being a starting pitcher since the Jamie Walker signing fills the void of bullpen lefty.

Rob Bell and Jon Leceister were also given assignments to minor league camp.  Sendy Rleal was also sent to minor league camp so he can continue rehab on his shoulder.

The Bell assignment looks to clear the way for Jeremy Guthrie to be the long reliever.

The question remains about the bench, will we see a 12 or 13 man pitching staff? I looks now that Freddie Bynum, Adam Stern, and Jason Dubois are the remaining fighters for that spot.

Bynum has 18 strikeouts in 37 at bats this season with 5 hits and .137 average. I’d much rather have Stern or Dubois.
