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.

    are they sure we signed Jason Schmidt? Coulda sworn it was Darren Dreifort.

    I knew once they had DeWitt make the roster, it was with the intention that he would start at SS once a week. Probably fill in for Blake about as often as well.

  • Brooklyn Dodger

    And probably fill-in for Hudson on occasion.

    I would have preferred Juan Castro–light hitter, but brilliant glove at any position. DeWitt would have been better served with more playing time at Triple AAA.
