    Has anyone taken over the shortstop position or is there still competition for the starting job. Is it looking like it will be rotational like last year?

    Was there bee any thought given to putting Kennon Fontenot back at 2nd and trying Hunter Kasuls in the outfield?

    What are we doing about 1st base?

    With regards to our lack of a true center fielder, and our lack of overall team speed, will Jam Williams be given every opportunity to play?

    Couple things, he ran down the positions roughly but there are still inter squads to be played. Not necessarily the depth chart exactly but you get the drift

    C: Monica, then Ray and Aguilar
    1B: Pinero, some Tyler Stover and Brenn has worked there also
    2B: Brenn or Kasuls
    3B: Robbins, Pinero, Poncho
    SS: Antchak or Kasuls
    LF: Fontenot, Izzy Edwards, Spears may end up redshirting just depends on need
    CF: Robbins, Jam, Lafleur, Stoelke (moved from P, was two way guy coming in and summer ball, very good athlete)
    RF: Sensley, Stover

    Didnt mention DH but you can assume that's likely Lott often. Also, Poncho is likely the first PH bat off the bench for us

    A lot will just depend on matchups. They will need to keep Brenn in the lineup one way or the other so having him work at 2B at times but perhaps at 1B some will keep the lineup more flexible. He didn't have time to specifically address Jam's playing time but was the 2nd guy mentioned in CF and that's behind Robbins who will often play 3B, so I imagine he will get chances

    Any guys on the 35 man roster can practice, regardless of redshirt.

    Lott's arm is coming along but they won't rush it. He's in throwing protocol. He is a very advanced bat for his age, so we will see him often.

    Babs said that isn't something they've considered. Fontenot is now an OF. Not to dump on the kid but his brief stint at 2B a couple years ago wasn't exactly encouraging

    You're right, but the kid was an all American 2nd baseman twice in high school. Obviously the college game is much faster, but I was just curious what had been considered.

    IMO, unless Jam is completely inept at the plate, I would have him in CF and in the lineup. We lack team speed. Big time.

    Anyway, thanks for the info boys.

    Jam cant be out there. You can almost chalk it up as an out in the lineup. We have too many bats and too many versatile guys that can fill in that position. You can give up a little something defensively for a quality bat, you arent so willing to do it the other way around.

    I think they're more or less set using 2/3 of Antchak, Kasuls and Brenn. He was pretty straightforward about Kennon. They aren't expecting to use him outside of LF and I think he has that basically locked down.

    On Jam, you know as well as anyone what he needs to improve. If he has made the strides on both offense and defense, I think he will be in the mix for sure. Robe has mentioned his prescription glasses helping him a bunch on defense and I'm sure they will help hitting. I think he can take a lot of pressure off the lineup if he's come along. Not being forced to play Joe in CF would likely allow us to play our best possible infield (defensively)

    I'll say this about Jam. He had some encouraging at bats early in the year last season. If he's a liability still, you're right, he can't be out there. But IMO, for our best lineup potential and our best defensive 9, Jam needs to be in center and provide speed in the lineup. He's a unique player that adds a lot of what we need, if he has improved to the point of contributing with the bat.

    Talking ideal situation here. Having said that, I know Stoelke can play and the coaches seem to be happy with him.

    There was word that Jam has made a jump. We will see if it carries into the season. I think they really want Joe in CF. Apparently Poncho has been a natural at 3rd base too. I imagine a lot of shuffling based on match ups.
