    Yep. He's a pretty good CFer.

    In 1712 career innings in CF, he's a +19.6 defender.

    Pirates' 4th (Lincoln pitching): Sanchez 7. McLouth 4-3. Doumit K, looking.

    Reds' 5th: Hanigan singles to right. Bankston F8. Dickerson 4-6, fielder's choice. Keppingger K.

    1-0 Reds after 4 1/2.

    Ron Flores is pitching the 5th.

    Anybody think Flores has a chance to make this team? Might have accomplished for them what Rhodes is likely to do and at a much lower cost. Will be interesting to see. I remember watching him in Oakland being pretty effective for a couple of years.

    yes -- with Bray slow out of the blocks, I think they're looking closely at him and Danny Ray -- does Bray have options left?

    Agree with lollipop, Bray's annual slow start opens the door a bit for another lefty to make the team out of camp until Bray is ready. I am rooting for Herrera myself.

    I hope so. He's a phenomenal character guy. If you look at his numbers, you really have to wonder why he hasn't been given more of a chance. He has a reputation of being a lefty specialist, but in the minors, the results weren't much different than they were against right-handers. So far, in the majors, it's been a little bit of a different story, though.

    I can't remember if he was optioned last year, but I know he has one or two options left.

    edit: Yeah, he was optioned for most of April last year, so he has only one option left.

    Fultz gives up a run on a hit and two walks in the 6th inning. 1-1 after six.

    I love that our pitchers are making the roster decisions hard for TPTB for a change and pitching really well!
