Hairston Progressing - Carrasco Not...

A few injury up-dates;

Scott Hairston took BP today and reported no pain, he will attempt to swing the bat again tomorrow.  While there's no time frame on his return it's clear Hairston is progressing and is aiming to be ready for opening day.  If both Hairston and Torres couldn't make the opening day roster it would force the team to make some very tough decisions in regards to the roster, so it's positive on many different levels for Hairston to return....

D.J. Carrasco isn't faring as well, reports indicate that Carrasco's ankle is not responding and it's looking like he'll start the season on the DL.  While the DL gives the team an excuse for D.J. not making the opening day roster it still doesn't free up his roster spot, which is why I still say cut him.
