Otherwise, he’ll split ab’s with Wood at 3rd.

Is NH the only one who thinks he isn’t overmatched.

I think Leroux has looked good in the limited time he’s been used. I doubt it will be Watson, as it doesn’t make sense to me to leave Biemel as the only LH in the pen.

The more intersting move will be if/when Alvarez comes back. Who’s the odd man out then? DFA Overbay? DFA Wood? send d’Arnaud back to AAA? Do they get rid of an OF instead, DFA Diaz? DFA Paul?
