As per RedsFest.

Good news, IMO. Leake's advanced feel for pitching (and good stuff) will be challenged, but not to the point of impossibility.

At this point, you've got to think he's fourth in line for a starter spot behind Maloney, Lehr, and Wood.

Also:

  • Boxberger to likely close in A Ball


  • Frazier to play in AAA, but no position has been chosen for him yet. Jocketty said it depended on how Francisco (another man without a position) plays in LF


  • Speaking of Francisco, he's going to be tried first, it looks like, in LF.
