Never heard of 26 y/o, 6′ 6″ , 220 lb RHP Deck McGuire. Guess we’ll see what kinda’ stuff he has today, eh?

Aledmys Diaz starting at SS too. Really hope he does well. I like his glove,now if he could hit 240-250 I’d be over-the-moon. Adams/Moss duel continues, both in the lineup.

Yes, Diaz will probably end up on the final roster once the season actually begins. He can maybe play 2B too. Greg Garcia still appears to have fielding issues off & on.
And Washington is doing good at 1B, don’t cha’ think?
