Who gets the callup to fill the bullpen spot today? It looks like either Tracey or Nelson to me. Anyone heard anything about Nelson? I know he's in Tuscon in extended spring training, but is he ready to go?

This was reported on the 9th.

Minor-league report

Reliever Jeff Nelson, signed last week to a minor-league contract, is scheduled to report to Triple-A Charlotte in a few days, farm director Dave Wilder said.

Nelson has spent the last week in extended spring in Tucson, re-conditioning his arm after being one of the last cuts in spring training with the Cardinals.

I love that optimism!

Now for some reality:

Garland starts tonight.

I think it will be Tracy and he'll be around until the 20th when Contreras returns.

When (or if) Nelson is ever ready to go, he comes up and either Thornton or Logan leaves.

When Williams pulls a deal then the other one of those two is gone.

Why would either have to leave? There's room on the roster...

Not only that, but whoever it is, is eventually going to see some time. It's not just one game, he's got until May 20th.

I'm thinking that when Nelson is ready, whenever that is, Logan goes down. In order to send down Thornton, he would need to clear waivers. Why waive a guy like Thornton to take a risk on Nelson, who could end up sucking just as bad?? If Nelson fails, call Logan back up. [ shoulder shrug ]

I vote Thornton.

Me too. When he comes in you know he is guarenteed to walk at least one person.

Tracey Nelson? Didn't she star as that crime solving nun with Tom Bosely as the priest?
