So with Young looking like he will make the team (and Ramon Vazquez to be traded or released), that leaves the 3 Amigoes fighting for the last bench spot. Each has not really impressed much with the bat.
I think Pearce will be the guy. He can play two positions (1st base and OF) and is righthanded. He can spot Clement at 1st base if he falters.
Moss finally got a hit today, but he has not impressed me much. Why would we want to give him (another lefthander) ML at bats when he can't even hit in Spring Training? Moss is out of options so if he does not make it, he needs to pass waivers to go to AAA. Who would want to take him?
I haven't see Raynor do much (except for a HR today). Raynor is a Rule 5, so if we want to keep him, we have to make a deal to keep him is he does not make the team. Maybe we can buy him for $100K or some Class A guy.
So if I had to choose, I'd keep Pearce and do the best I could to keep the others to play at AAA.
