One More Spot

Marc Topkin tweets that Rob Delaney (sorry, Hanselman), and Cory Wade (sorry, Rancel) were sent down all but assuring Jake McGee, Juan Cruz, and Cesar Ramos have earned the final three spots in the bullpen. As we pointed out, this is what Maddon hinted at on his spot with Mike & Mike on ESPN radio the other day.

If the 12 pitching spots are taken, and the other 12 spots on the offense are still the same as they were last month when we first looked at it, the last decision comes down to Elliot Johnson or Felipe Lopez.

Catchers: John JasoKelly Shoppach

Infield: Dan JohnsonSean RodriguezReid BrignacEvan Longoria

Outfield: Johnny DamonB.J. UptonMatthew JoyceSam FuldBen Zobrist

DH: Manny Ramirez

Starters: David Price, James Shields, Wade Davis, Jeff Niemann, Jeremy Hellickson

Bullpen: Andy Sonnanstine, Adam Russell, Kyle Farnsworth, Joel Peralta, Juan Cruz, Jake McGee, Cesar Ramos

Yesterday, Johnson spoke in the clubhouse to a few of us and was rather confident he has done everything he can to prove he’s earned that spot and it would be tough to argue otherwise.
