Meanwhile, there’s also going to be an intrasquad game today on the back fields, in which Robbie Ray, Mike Leake, Archie Bradley, Hector Rondon and Kevin Ginkel are taking part. For Leake and Ginkel, it’s going to be a good test, as they’ve both had injury concerns of one kind or another this spring. Leake still hasn’t seen action in a Cactus League game, and with barely two weeks to go until Opening Day, is running out of time to get himself stretched out. Ginkel had also been rested, having experienced arm fatigue. Should either man not be ready, that will leave a slot to be filled on the 26-man roster. But that’s something we can talk about during tomorrow’s off-day!
