"He's in the mix...He's a right-handed bat with a track record of some power. He can play the three outfield spots. His best position is right field."

Old friend Austin Kearns is suddenly hitting the ball for the Tribe ...

The People's Champion, Mark Zuckerman says Craig Stammen and Scott Olsen are battling for the one remaining spot in the Nationals rotation, says Mock and Livo are locks for #3 and #4.
