Projecting the Opening Day roster: 2/3

Nothing new over the past seven days, meaning this projection is the same as the last one. So in that case, a refresher:

Comments: Nickeas makes the Opening Day roster due to the eight games remaining on Ronny Paulino’s PED suspension.

What are they going to do with Oliver Perez and Luis Castillo?????

I see Murphy over Emaus or even an early platoon. I’m guessing the position will be determined by Murphy’s fielding too.

Any lineup without Ollie and Castillo is good to me.

U think Tankersley, Beato and Buckholtz make this team? One of them has 10 appearances over the past 2 years, one of them had an ERA over 7 last season and did not pitdh in 2009 and one of them has no big league service time. I have to disagree based on their performance.
