John Hickey tells us that Benji Gil and Ricky Gutierrez "have gotten the unofficial word that neither will make the big league roster," meaning that the battle for the last spot on the bench is down to Greg Dobbs vs. Ramon Santiago. Pick your poison.
We're also told that:
- Pokey hurt himself again (sore shoulder)
- The soonest Atchison will be pitching again is the end of April, if then
- Matt Thornton has apparently erased all doubts with 2.1 walkless innings in an ST game
