Putz peril, Morrow earns notice, White wishful
Putz’s elbow “tightened” up after his bullpen session yesterday. Yeagh. Times.
Echoing Dave’s notes yesterday, Brandon Morrow’s performance is praised by Johjima in the PI, and others carried the tune.
Also in the PI, Sean White wants to make the team.
In what is likely really good news for the M’s, the Rangers put Sosa on their 40m, and seem likely to go into the season relying on him for offense. Woooo! Chances of that panning out… 10%? 12?
Mark Shapiro agreed to a 5-year extension in Cleveland. Not that I wish them ill, but I’m hoping they don’t go through the rest of the front office and make those guys offers they can’t refuse.
Update! Cuts! Looks like C Rob Johnson’s headed to minor league camp, which at this point pretty much means you’re assured Rivera’s the backup catcher this year. I don’t think Burke or Johnson are going to be given a realistic chance.
Also tossed off the team: IF-R Garciaparra, IF-R LaHair, IF-R Navarro, OF-B Wilson, OF-R Balentien
