Roster moves
  • Selected the Contract
    Rickie Weeks, Jr. OF
  • Optioned:
    Enrique Burgos RHP - Triple-A Reno
    Evan Marshall RHP - Triple-A Reno
    Peter O'Brien OF - Triple-A Reno
  • Reassigned to Minor League Camp:
    Jason Bourgeois OF

Barrett and Bracho edged out the alternative relief pitchers, Enrique Burgos and Evan Marshall, with a strong set of spring performances - Barrett has no major-league experience and Bracho only 12.1 innings, considerably less than Burgos and Marshall. However, I've no doubt we'll likely see the latter two at some point over the course of the season, in the natural order of things. Weeks and Drury edged out Peter O'Brien and Jason Bourgeois: though listed as an infielder above, as we saw this afternoon, it's possible we may end up seeing Drury in the outfield, along with Owings.
