That's 22 players. I'm including Emaus in the regulars because I believe he's already won the 2B job.


That's 3 spots left for the bench, not counting if Beltran starts the season on DL. One of them is going to be the backup catcher. There's Ronnie Paulino and Mike Nickeas. My guess is Paulino


For a utility man infielder, there are a couple of choices, but I think it will be a mild upset if it's not Chin-Lun Hu. One spot left for either Daniel Murphy or Nick Evans. I think since Murphy is left handed hitter, it almost has to be him. But Nick Evans is a really good bat and he will be exposed to other clubs since he is out of options. If Collins goes with only 6 relievers than they could keep him, but I think that's a long shot. The only other way is if Beltran starts the season on DL, then I could see them plugging Evans in as the everyday right fielder, and I'm almost hoping that happens. I'd hate to lose Evans. In the end, we'll probably have to get rid of him because there are better outfielders in the system that are pretty good hitters, too. You can't hold Duda and Niewenhaus back forever. Even F-Mart has a chance to play his way onto the big club.
