    I asked PJ tonight about his return and he said Friday. Hitting coach Tom Wilson was throwing at him and he was blocking before the game. Then they played catch. He said he is feeling good.

    Maybe they can send PJ to SWB he’s earn it

    Moeller will be returning soon, so AAA will get crowded again at Catcher. Closser will have to go, as Stewart is solid there. I doubt PJ gets up there.
