Cactus League Game 12 Open Thread - Royals vs. Mariners

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

The Battle for Grass Creek gets a warm up exercise. And we see our first cuts.

The Royals have seen enough of the scrubs, sending Chris Dwyer and John Lamb to minor league camp in the first round of cuts. Lamb was disastrous in his start on Saturday, getting just two outs in the first and giving up four runs. Others assigned to minor league camp include P Jason Adam, P Aaron Brooks, P Sugar Ray Marimon, C Juan Graterol, 3B Brandon Laird, OF Jorge Bonifacio, OF Gorkys Hernandez, OF Melky Mesa, P Paulo Orlando, and P Kyle Zimmer, who is expected to begin the year in extended spring training due to bicep tendinitis. Did you make the first round of cuts? If so, congrats.

Curiously, P Michael Mariot survived the first round of cuts despite a terrible outing yesterday, but Ned decided to give him a "mulligan."

Line up!

Infante makes his first start in the field today since the beginning of spring training. This is pretty close to what you'll see on Opening Day. Ned only brings out the best against those dastardly Mariners. This is serious.

WAR!
