Cactus League Games 25/26, Split Squad Action
Today is the only split squad day we will be having. Treasure this moment.
Day Game Lineup:
2B Jack Wilson
3B L. Rodriguez
LF “C. Jimenez” (I think they mean “Gimenez”)
RF Mike Wilson
The early game is on MLB Network right now. Cesar Jimenez (and not Chris Gimenez), Tom Wilhelmsen, and Chris Ray are available to pitch, along with minor leaguers Steve Richard, Robert Rohrbaugh, and Bobby LaFromboise, all kind of fringey guys who would either make an impression or not.
Jose Flores was returned to the Indians today. This was probably the least surprising move of the spring. The jump from the Midwest League to the MLB is a pretty substantial one. I guess my question would be why we picked him in the first place, but the team deemed it a gamble with some upside and little loss, so whatever.
The night game will be on FSN/Root Sports. It will feature the other half of our lineup (Olivo included?) with Erik Bedard on the mound. Some other guys you may have heard of will show up as well.
Edit: Look, here’s a lineup for that
