Alderson Wont Make Trade Or Promote Duda or F-Mart If Beltran’s Out
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Sandy Alderson does not believe that Carlos Beltran will open the season on the disabled list. Well that’s comforting to know, but this isnt:
But the GM added that he’s not in the market for a right fielder at this point and would be more inclined to use a combination of Scott Hairston and Willie Harris in right field than a Triple-A prospect (Fernando Martinez or Lucas Duda) in Beltran’s absence.
I thought that was an odd stance for Sandy Alderson to take or at least admit to at this stage of the game.
Rubin adds that it bodes well for “on-the-bubble Nick Evans”, who might have a difficult time making a five-man bench without an injury.
So, Scott Hairston and Willie Harris it is.
