Anyone else in the bullpen have Options left?

Cimber, Curtiss, Floro, and Bleier all have options. Another option could be to start without Sixto until the second series and then drop a reliever when Sixto is ready.

Does anyone think Eddy Alvarez is actually making the 26 man roster? 

He was never making it unless there were injuries. I kept him on the list because it would be nice to reference his Spring numbers in that event.

Eddy Álvarez should make the team if they are using a 5-man bench. No purpose of having both Sierra and Brinson if Cooper will be playing outfield.

At least Alvarez can play all over the infield

As can Berti, but this is a fair point.

Everyone brings up Cooper as an outfielder but the team clearly would rather not have him there. To them he's a first baseman only. He will only occasionally be out there if at all.

If he means getting his bat in the lineup, I could see Cooper getting quite a few starts in the OF, especially against LHPs.

Looks like we might get a 9 man bullpen AND Brinson plus Mags.

Yep. Cooper will get more starts in RF  over 1B with Aguilar being a must start as well.   Dickerson may have the title as a starter but he won’t get more ABs over Cooper.  Probably around the same.

Wonder if the TB series, played a factor to Campbell over Bender.  Maybe they didn’t want to release him sending him back to TB for our matchup?

Just a thought.

If Campbell gets hurt in this series, would it ok to return an injured player to his former team.

Yes sure.  It would be a gift for stealing signs last year vs Sandy.

Not in my book. Leon has long demonstrated he can't hit. Wallach has had some nice stretches with the bat. I'd much prefer Wallach -- when he's healthy.

Just hope Leon would stay with this organization as the third catcher, he has great defense.
