Competition Update - Saturday's Game

Infield Competition


In the infield competition, Dozier started at second and Florimon at shortstop. Each went 0-2 in two plate appearances.  Escobar started at third base and went 2 for 3. Sobolewski replaced Escobar and went 0-2.

Outfield Competition

Mastroianni started in center field and leading off. He went 1-3. Thomas replaced him and went 2-2 with an RBI. Parmelee went 0-2 in right field.

Pop off the Bench

Colabello started the game at first and went 0-3. Clement replaced him and went 0-1 with a walk and a strikeout. As mentioned above, Sobolewski went 0-2.

Summary

In the battle for bench spots, Thomas helped himself. He has a shot at the 4th outfield spot if Mastroianni is the starter in center field. None of the guys competing for spots as "pop off the bench" helped themselves. Escobar probably helped himself a little bit in the infield competition by showing some bat. Of course, its just one game.
