A few weeks ago, Ramon Troncoso was not a part of the Dodgers’ Master Bullpen Plan, but that has now changed… dramatically! So far this Spring, it looks like R-Tron will be a key part of the Dodgers’ bullpen as a set-up man. He has rediscovered his sinker and has been “light’s out” this Spring. With Belisario out (maybe forever) and Padilla not likely to return until June, unless R-Tron really screws up, he’s on the team.
I think it’s likely that the Dodgers will carry 12 pitchers, and barring injury, I am fairy certain that these are the twelve:
- Mahay (LH specialist – Elbert has
mental, ‘er mechanical issues to work out)
A sore arm, pulled hammy or some other malady could affect how this shapes up, but I can see that happening.
That’s my take. What’s yours?
