Andy cut

Not really surprising, but it's official now. Andy Phillips was reassigned to minor league camp today. It's really too bad. The guy's had the worst luck in spring training. If he hadn't been injured, he'd probably be going north with the big league club.

I don't think Andy can refuse the assignment, unless he has a special clause in his contract. He had a minor league deal, and so was not on the 40-man roster and does not have to clear waivers. He probably wouldn't want to refuse the assignment even if he could. He's not likely to find a better opportunity now.

I guess I'll be seeing Andy in June, when Indianapolis comes to Scranton, if he hasn't been called up by then.

Former Yankee Jeff Karstens won the final spot in the Bucs' rotation.

Hi, Mike. I'm flattered to be asked, but I'm probably over-extended as it is. I owe Red Reporter an AL East preview, like, yesterday.

Maybe someone there would be interested, though. It's a Reds blog, so there's lots of interest in the NL Central there.
