The Garcia boys have both been activated off the DL. Jose Rondon optioned to Charlotte. Trayce Thompson designated for assingment.

Haha. But realistically this means we don't have to watch Palka play OF anymore.

Yeah, but the flip-side is that we have to watch Leury Garcia hit.

I expect we'll still see plenty of Palka in the OF. It will be a 3-man rotation between Engel, Tilson, and Palka for the LF/CF spots. Leury will be the primary backup IF. I'm not exactly sure why you consider him to be a downgrade at the plate vs. Rondon.

The past two years have provided evidence that they don’t like playing Leury in the infield, and believe it or not, Rondon actually has hit much better than Leury this year. Personally, I don’t have much use for either one, but I would rather take Rondon’s ability to play SS.

Edit: And right on cue, Leury is in LF for Game 1.

I bet Palka in center field would make us long for the days of Rob Mackowiak.

Meh to both of them.
