Ron Villone agreed to a minor-league deal and will report to Scranton. This puts a little heat on Sean Henn, but that’s life in the big leagues.
I’m sure the deal includes some kind of out clause if another team has interest. If Villone gets his command back, teams will come knocking. Tampa Bay should sign him now. How do you start the season with no lefties in the pen?
Meanwhile Chien-Ming Wang threw another bullpen and will probably pitch in a game this weekend in Tampa. He’s moving along well from his hamstring problem.
I dropped the Wanger an e-mail and he reported back that he feels great and is anxious to get back to New York. He has been throwing every other day, so his arm is in great shape.
