I recognize Alzolay, but no one else there. Who is bottom left?

Finally! This is what I've been waiting for.

Now I have to wait to see what kind of coverage/reports we will get out of South Bend. I need trackman and exit velo data. I need video. I need scrimmages. I need... well, what I need is an actual 140 game minor league baseball season, but I'll take what I can get!

That would bring the roster to 55 of 60. I’m hoping they add Burl Carraway and Manuel Rodríguez right now too.

Yeah, I'm hoping that this is a sign things are indeed going well in Camp from a health perspective. Hopefully that continues, and we can keep adding the two you mentioned, plus maybe a few of Jensen/Clarke/McAvene. Obviously that would require some cuts, but there's several fringey pen arms who if they're not worth making the MLB pen at the start of the season with expanded rosters are pretty easy cuts: Hultzen, Brothers, Adam, Gamez, Norwood, etc.

I'd also love to get a few more of the Myrtle Beach guys onto the roster. Roederer and Strumpf especially.

Burl will make 58/60, though I assume some MLB vets who don’t make the official roster this week will ask for and get their release rather than go to South Bend.

Sounds like Phegley, Miller, and Brothers all have a good shot at making the OD roster, which would require 40 man moves. So yeah I'd imagine we see 3 vets sent out (Descalso, Norwood, and one of Cotton/Tepera?), and the roster trimmed down to 55.

The South Bend roster is pretty light on position players, so I imagine after Carraway we see additions there...something like Giambrone, Rivas, and Roederer? Then save those last two slots for emergency?

Pevey had specific comments on Alzolay, Amaya, Davis, Márquez and Morel. The Davis stuff is great even though it’s likely over the top (considering Pevey has been around or coached Báez, Bryant, Jiménez, Rizzo, Schwarber and Soler).

Love the Morel quote too. 112 is some serious exit velo. Only 23 guys have done that even once this year. Pretty great for a guy who probably still has physical maturing left to do.

Cubs signed Kelvin Herrera to a MiL deal. I was interested when the White Sox released him so yes
