Looks like Jose Acevedo is in the picture for a bullpen slot, where he pitched very well last year. It should be noted, however, that he has struggled mightily this spring.
Acevedo has options remaining, however, so don’t be surprised if he doesn’t make the big club when they break camp.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
