Dejan Kovacevic has some news from spring training. Chacon has arthritis and will pitch through pain. Herrera has performed well, with poise. Bautista can play shortstop. He also reported early, with Chris Duffy. In another article, Eldred is compared to Ryan Shealy. I'm still a little bitter about that one so I will say, watch what Ryan Shealy does this year before expecting the Pirates to get much for Eldred at the deadline. Doumit will make the team, but no one is sure what his role will be. I still expect he'll get good PA starting behind Paulino, LaRoche, and Nady. Time will tell.
