If you’re looking for more Jarred Kelenic in today’s intrasquad action (and really, why wouldn’t you after seeing these two majestic shots from yesterday), I’m pleased to announce that he is once again in the lineup, and as an added bonus, we’ll also get another look at Julio Rodríguez and Noelvi Marte:
Both Julio and Noelvi have gotten carved up pretty badly in their early looks against big league pitch sequencing and breaking balls - the latter getting rekt by a Brandon Williamson slider over the weekend:

...so seeing how they adjust today is something to keep an eye on. For the Pilots, Yusei Kikuchi is making his intrasquad debut after getting some live BP work last week, where he reportedly hit 95 on his fastball. Nick Margevicius and his big, loopy curve get the start for the Steelheads, and Cal Raleigh behind the dish is another thing to look forward and pay attention to in today’s action, especially if Marg spikes a few of those curves.
