Monday morning quarterback
Milton Bradley took batting practice on Monday but was not ready to get in a game just yet. He’s still being treated for tightness in his left thigh. Lou Piniella wasn’t concerned, saying there’s plenty of time.
Other early news and notes:
- Piniella isn’t ready to name an Opening Day starter, but says it’ll be between Carlos Zambrano and Ryan Dempster. Zambrano makes his first Cactus League start Monday vs. the Diamondbacks.
- Among the regulars going to Las Vegas Wednesday and Thursday are Ryan Theriot, Mike Fontenot, Koyie Hill, Aramis Ramirez, Reed Johnson, and Alfonso Soriano.
