Yes, but I think the Angels are beyond the point where they are concerned with keeping Erstad on the field. They feel they can keep going if he goes down.

I think between GA and Erstad's injury problems in the past, McPherson is a pretty solid shot at getting playing time. Either way they have depth everywhere. :-o

I think Carrasco will be in the pen.

I think Saunders or Weaver will be the number 5.

I'm all for letting McPherson try to live up to expectations, but his history of injuries is starting to concern me.

It seems like they will give Morales a year seasoning at AAA. Wood and Weaver have their invites to ST. Does anybody think Weaver will make the club perhaps in relief?

He won't make it as a relief pitcher. He has a decent chance of getting the number 5 spot. Carrasco, Saunders, Weaver and Bootcheck will be given the chance to fight it out.

I would rank their chances of getting the number 5 spot like this:

Saunders/Weaver (Saunders is a lefty, which really helps his case since Washburn is gone)
Carrasco
Bootcheck
