Within a piece I'll revisit in a moment, we learn that Edwin Maysonet has been sent down. Alas, I got this one wrong:
Between Maysonet and Smith, it's a toss-up. Up until Maysonet's two homer day, he showed no stick, and Smith hasn't shown much of a glove. It could go either way, but I'll say that since Smith signed a minor-league contract back at the beginning of January, Maysonet will get the nod - at least initially.
At least I called it a toss-up.
And as Tags so deftly reported, beating me to the punch because I was looking at a house (of all days...):
Cecil Cooper has already said Johnson isn't going to make the team to ride the bench, so it appears Johnson will begin in the minors and Smith will be the utility infielder.
