He looked real good in each, hitting his spots with each pitch, very sharp. Encouraging outing

Due to the day off on the 2nd of April it would even be feasible for Jeff to have an extra week to prepare for his first start he could be skipped and AJ could pitch and then he could pick the second time through the rotation where ever they plan to fit him in. Even potentially starting on the 15 day retroactive far enough that he would be able to start on the 12th of April I believe. Tim correct me if I am wrong on that. But that would allow him to pitch and outing for AAA and might even help if they need to iron out the bench and carry an extra bench player for a week or someone may make a spot start too.

Also, what’s your best-guess ETA for Contreras & Liriano to begin throwing and then be ready for ML duty?
