Finally a decent outing from Steven White!
Only Steven's final inning of work was scary- after getting the first two outs, he gave up back to back singles, then walked the next batter to load the bases before getting the third out.
For the record, while Gardner has not shown me enough for me to think he can be an everyday player in New York that doesn't mean that he can't play CF somewhere. He's Joey Gaithright; he might never be great, but there will always be an Ozzie Guillen willing to sacrifice offense for the appearance of offense.
Ohlendorf got three groundballs (2 to short, one up the middle for a single).
Wordekemper has not allowed a run 7 appearances; in that span his line is 9.1IP, 3H, 2BB, 8K. And he'll probably start the season at AA because there are too many MLB-ready relievers in Scranton.
The big boys got the day off, but Steven Jackson must read the blog, because I called him out after his last outing, and he responded by looking like the prospect we all want him to be. His first scoreless appearance in the AFL.
