Rickard Likely Activated This Week; Who Goes?

I thought Gentry at first too. But he has proven his worth as a pinch runner late in games and would also have to pass through waivers so I'm thinking they maybe go back to a five man bench or possibly option Rickard himself instead.

Do the Os view Rickard and Gentry as redundant?  That's the big question.  Otherwise it's gonna be a pitcher I think

The original plan was for Gentry and Rickard to platoon with Smith and Kim, so no they don't view them as redundant. Mancini has, at least temporarily, upended the plan a little bit with his bat, but if they're planning on activating Rickard it won't be Gentry that goes.

For now they will only need 4 starters. Has to be a pitcher. Depends on if they are willing to use Aquino in the pen or not.
