Over on his very fine blog, Chad Jennings talked to Mark Newman and has updates on J.B. Cox, Mark Melancon, Juan Miranda and others.
Cox and Melancon will be ready for spring training after having elbow surgery. Humberto Sanchez is a little further behind. Miranda is scheduled to start the season in Triple-A.
In case you missed it, they signed Darrell Rasner to a minor-league deal. They’re also trying to bring Bronson Kiheimahanaomauiakeo Sardinha back. Big news in Hawaii, I suspect.
