McTaggart's Update

Brian McTaggart has his update from today's Spring Training:

-Keep Nelson Figueroa in your thoughts and prayers, as his grandfather has passed away, and Figueroa will miss some time to attend the funeral.

"He instilled that hard-work mentality into my father and he instilled that into me, and dad still works as hard as ever. I go and play this game with a workman mentality and take nothing for granted, and realize I'm blessed to play this game. I've paid my dues time and time again, and will continue to do so in [his grandfather's] honor. We're a very close family, and this will make us even tighter."

-Bill Hall is expected in camp for the first time tomorrow, as he has been with his fiancee for the birth of their child.
