Lab Notes: 1/24/12

The first day of Spring Training has come and gone and like many other first days, there was nothing out of the ordinary. I don't like saying there wasn't anything special but we are now one day closer to Opening Day...so we've got that going for us, which is nice.

For major league teams, the only news worth reporting is usually their high-priced, free agent signee has arrived at camp or a returner has either dropped or gained significant weight. We don't have any free agents coming to camp, but there were a few new additions to the roster. For the latest, check out the News & Notes.

News & Notes:
  • The program added two players in the Aaron and Tyler Lindgren, outfielders from Willoughby South. Tyler comes on board from Notre Dame College while Aaron, already at Lake Erie, spent the fall on the gridiron with the football team.
  • Pitchers did some light tossing gearing up for their first full bullpen session on Wednesday. The pens will be short in nature but will prep them for the first live bullpens on Saturday.
  • The new hitting coach put on quite a display during his first day in the cage. This should help for Saturday's live bullpens.
