A quick update before I head out to Surprise, Ariz., to watch an A’s split-squad team play the Rangers. Besides Tucson, this is the longest road trip in the Cactus League. Surprise is way out on the west side of the Phoenix metropolitan area. If I hit the California border, I know I’ve gone too far …
Lineup vs. Rangers
Lineup vs. Cubs in Mesa:
–As for other news, Andrew Bailey is throwing off the mound today and Bob Geren says he’s on track to appear in a game Sunday or Monday. Craig Breslow is pitching in an intrasquad game as I write. No word yet on when Joey Devine might get back on the mound since coming down w/forearm tendinitis. But he’s doing well in his throwing program, Geren says.
Time to hit the road …
