Gearing up for season
Manager Fredi Gonzalez spoke to the team about what he expects in the final games of Grapefruit League games.
Basically, Gonzalez said he wants to use players the way they would be used in the regular season. Those who made the trip to Port St. Lucie on Saturday were told, “get ready to pinch-hit. Be ready to double-switch.”
“Looking at the grand scheme of things, to get guys playing time, I could see using Bonifacio like we did Amezaga,” Gonzalez said. “Against a tough right-hander, we could give Maybin a breather and get Boni in the lineup in center field.
“You may see that kind of stuff.”
