Competition Update after Sunday's Game

Infield Competition
Dozier went 1-3 starting at second and Escobar 1-1 after replacing him. Sobolewski went 1-1 with an RBI  after replacing Plouffe at third. Olmedo played shortstop and went 1-4.

Outfield Competition
Hicks went 0-3 in center, Benson went 0-3 in right. Thomas replaced Hicks and went 0-1. Boggs replaced Benson and went 0-1. Ramirez went 0-4 in left.

Pop off the Bench
Clement played first and went 1-2. Dinkelman came in at DH as a pinch hitter and went 0-1.

Rotation
Pelfrey went 3 innings, giving up a hit and a walk.

Bullpen
Burnett gave up 3 hits and run in one inning. Burton gave up 3 runs on 4 hits and a walk in one inning. Fien gave up 1 run on 1 hit. May went and inning and walked two. Hermsen gave up 2 runs on a hit batter and a home run.

Summary
Pelfrey's start was encouraging. No one in the bullpen shined, but Burnett, Burton and Fien would need to continue to struggle to lose their spots. May and Hermsen are slated as starters in the minor leagues. The guys competing for infield spots all got hits. Olmedo spending the whole game at shortstop may indicate he is getting some real consideration for a roster spot.  No one in the outfield helped themselves with the bat.
