My bench right now is:

CIF - Fox

MIF - Izturis, but Harris is making an argument for himself.

OF - Way up in the air with Pie, Reimold and Wynn all in play

C - Tatum

Fox/Pie/Izturis/Tatum for me. Harris can hit okay but from what I understand can't field. Even if they view them evenly as players, they'll defer to Izturis just out of loyalty. I think the biggest question is whether Buck is comfortable with Fox as the back up catcher so they don't have to carry Tatum.

Fox / Pie / Reimold / Izturis is what I'd love to see.

I really don't like carrying no hit backup catchers like Tatum on the bench. Hopefully Fox isn't so poor defensively that he can't handle catching once a week.

I think your scenario is pretty likely. But, I could still see someone other than Pie making it in the outfield. Reimold is hitting significantly better than last spring, but he does have options. Wynn is a capable fielder at all three OF positions, a career .280 hitter, IIRC, and a switch hitter. Plus he has speed. He really is the perfect 4th outfielder. If we could get a real prospect for Pie, say someone better than Garrett Olson, I'd be tempted to make a deal.

I'd rather have Reimold in AAA until an injury occurs. No point in starving them of at-bats just for the sake of having them in Baltimore.
