Re: Pena traded for Arroyo
I wonder if Pena's being at the World Baseball Classic and not being in the Sarasota camp had anything to do with his being the one traded?
Narron was geting sufficient offense (and hustle/drive?) even without Pena in the ST liineup.
Putting Dunn back in LF improves the OF defense with a possiblity of a 2B platoon of Freel/Womack and a 1B platoon of Aurilia/Hatteberg/Valentin.
Is Hatteberg also the emergency-3rd catcher? If so, Javier may get more PT at 1B than he would with only 2 catchers on the roster.
For what it's worth, Arroyo's ST ERA is a splendid 10.03 in 11.2 innings.
