Is he available or will someone else be on the roster?
He is available. He threw on the side this week and did not have pain. He is dressed out in the dugout.
Taccolini may be still one week away. Crazy what this team has done without the most experienced pitchers on the team: Isaiah Campbell, Keaton McKinney, Dominic Taccolini and Cody Scroggins. Scroggins didn’t pitch much last year, but he did pitch over the summer and was used regularly in the fall. He would have pitched a lot of innings, if he did well.
There was thought that Scroggins would the team’s closer. His fastball was sitting at 95 mph in the preseason.
