Some Moves to Come Pregame
We already have one today with Chad Cordero put on the bereavement list. Winston Abreu replaces him.
But a bit of a surprise: It appears there will be two moves before the game. 1B/3B Tony Batista, the 33-year-old, is being promoted from Class AAA Columbus. We also know that Jason Simontacchi must be added to the 25-man roster to make his start tonight. That means two guys have to go.
Very educated guesses: SS Josh Wilson, who we have already talked about. Five errors in 25 chances. One hit in 19 at-bats. The other: I have a hunch that 1B Dmitri Young will be put on the disabled list with some sort of left foot injury. He has been battling it since San Diego last week. And he's clearly not helping at the plate, where a current 2-for-27 stretch has dropped his average from .275 to .224.
Batista: You remember him from his days with the Orioles and Blue Jays, right? He was hitting .290 with six homers and 22 RBI for Columbus with an OBP of .350 and a slugging percentage of .542. Another educated guess: Kory Casto or Robert Fick will play first base against right-handers, with Batista playing there against lefties.
And yes, I will pass on your thoughts to Cordero when I next see him.
