Watch: An all-candidate outfield today, with Pence (DH) and Mayberry (1B) the only regulars making the trip down to Bradenton. Frandsen is getting a look at second.

First I've heard of Miguel Abreu, so this is what I dug up:

Abreu signed as a minor-league free agent with the Phillies, so if he doesn’t get released he’ll likely play in Reading this season. He’s a .270-hitting corner outfielder with no power, little speed, and little supplementary on-base ability, so he’s unlikely to see any time in the majors.

Alrighty then. More on him about halfway down here.
