It’s a struggle to write the Morning News each day and come up with something noteworthy about the team at this point. It’s a dead period right before spring training begins. All the good free agents are in the fold with their new teams (sorry Michael Bourn). It’s a rather dead period for news. So, in an effort to try to scrape something together, here are a few news and notes nuggets for your Wednesday perusing.
- Righty reliever, Lendy Castillo, was outrighted to AAA Iowa after being designated for assignment late in January. If you’re not familiar with who he is, he was drafted in the Rule 5 draft in 2011 from the Phillies and his numbers in 2012 were less than stellar.
- Theo Epstein was a guest on the Waddle and Silvy podcast for ESPN 1000 on Wednesday. If you’re not a regular podcast listener, you can download the full show that day here. Epstein was the first guest of the day so you won’t have to listen long, though I would highly recommend the show. It’s my favorite podcast to listen to.
