CF Jon Jay

SS Jhonny Peralta

DH Matt Adams

RF Randal Grichuk

3B Dan Descalso

LF Shane Robinson

1B Xavier Scruggs

C Audry Perez

SP Joe Kelly

Scheduled Pitchers: Sam Freeman, Tyler Lyons, Lee Stoppelman, Seth Maness, Jorge Rondon, Boone Whiting.

Pretty much all hitters are listed as available again.

I think we'll be seeing a lot of Wong this spring; he's really struggled to get the bat going so far, so I think they will use him as much as possible to get ready. Granted we are only 3 games in, but I'm not seeing him making the opening day roster if he keeps going like this; they'll keep Kozma up and use Ellis everyday at second.

Good news for Oscar Taveras; the prospect has been cleared for full baseball activities, according to Rick Hummel. The team will still limit his activities at this point and Matheny won't use him until he's 100% confident in his health. There is a good chance he'll start the season in Memphis.
