The other option would be to let Gillaspie go and bring Davidson and Semien up for Opening Day.
They aren't going to let Gillaspie go. He's the starting third baseman on March 31. Davidson is going to the minors. I don't think Beckham will be ready to start the season. I think Semien will be the starting second baseman at the start. Keppinger will also be on the DL to start the year. I think L. Garcia makes the club initially as a utility player, but gets sent back down whenever Beckham or Keppinger comes back.

Still wouldn't be surprised if one of the two LFs gets traded and JorDanks ends up as the extra outfielder. I also think they'll carry 12 pitchers. I don't necessarily agree with that, but that's what every team does nowadays. It's just a product of bullpen specialization and the way the game is managed now in the late innings.
