Today we bid adieu to Tommy Manzella and Brian Bogusevic. Bogusevic has been assigned to minor-league camp while Manzella was optioned to Triple-A.

"I'm relieved I'll get a little more playing time, so I can get ready for the season," Manzella said. "That's the only thing on my mind right now."

Meanwhile, Bogusevic appreciated the few chances he had to start:
"It was the three or four games, that I had a chance to start and play the whole game," Bogusevic said. "It's different when you come in the seventh or eighth inning and back a guy up. When you're in the lineup and you're playing the full nine [innings], it's kind of a different experience you're much more into it."
