Lamb Released, McGehee 6th IF

By: Big Rygg

In a move that will surprise no one that’s been listening to our podcasts, Mike Lamb was released today. There are some waiver specifics that I could get into, but why bother? The point of this post is that the door is now wide open for Casey McGehee to make the 25-man roster and break camp with the big league club.

McGehee has had a torrid spring, batting .364 in 55 AB with 6 HR and 15 RBI. The only hole is his game in a spring that he has played 3B, 2B and 1B defensively, is that he has yet to take a walk. I think that will come with no real problems because in all fairness, he has been trying to make team so why not slug every good pitch that comes your way in Spring Training?

So, to do the duty that is a necessity at this time of year, here is how I see the 25-man roster that will head to San Francisco.

Starters
C – Jason Kendall
1B – Prince Fielder
2B – Rickie Weeks
3B – Bill Hall
SS – J.J. Hardy
LF – Ryan Braun
CF – Mike Cameron
RF – Corey Hart

Bench
C – Mike Rivera
2B, SS, 3B – Craig Counsell (LH)
1B, 2B, 3B – Casey McGehee (RH)
OF – Tony Gwynn Jr. (LH)
LF, RF, 1B – Brad Nelson (RH)

Starting Rotation
RHP – Jeff Suppan
RHP – Yovani Gallardo
LHP – Manny Parra
RHP – Braden Looper
RHP – Dave Bush

Bullpen
CL – Carlos Villanueva
Todd Coffey
Mark DiFelice
Jorge Julio
Seth McClung
David Riske
Mitch Stetter (LHP)

DL
Trevor Hoffman

I’ll get into more detail during the 2009 Season Preview Series which will be getting underway shortly.
