DeWitt to play SS tomorrow, Ausmus to start at C on Friday night

Tomorrow is a 12:35 start, so the quick turnaround gave Torre the right circumstances to rest Rafael Furcal. DeWitt will be making his major-league debut at SS even though he played there 11 times in the Cactus League. Martin’s game off got pushed back to Friday just because Joe didn’t want to take two of his frontline guys out on the same day. … Jason Schmidt’s next start in extended spring is going to be delayed by at least a day, maybe more. He apparently told Torre on the phone today that he “threw harder as a teenager.” The saga continues.
