Levine, on the Winter Ballers

Zach Levine has an update on Rule 5 pick Aneury Rodriguez and Fernando Abad, noting that Rodriguez has thrown 48IP and Abad has thrown 38.2IP.

On Abad:
He enters spring training most likely headed to the bullpen and enjoying the inside track to the primary lefty setup role. However, the rotation is not out of the question, as he was immensely successful in that role this winter.

Both will play in the Caribbean Series, but if Rodriguez doesn't stay on the 25-man roster all season, he'll head back to Tampa Bay.
