Lefty Randy Wolf and catcher Gregg Zaun headed over to the Minor League fields a few moments ago to take part in an intrasquad game designed to keep Wolf on track for the start of the season. The team opted to give the “A” game assignment to Chris Narveson, who is still bidding for his spot in the rotation.
Wolf was not the only big league pitcher in action. The team also sent left-hander Mitch Stetter, who has not been sharp in his Cactus League appearances, to pitch two controlled innings in front of pitching coach Rick Peterson.
“I told Rick that I think the best route for Mitch, if you really want to get a look at him instead of putting him out there against a ton of right-handers and then I have to take him out of the game, is let’s let him throw 15 pitches, sit him down, and then throw 15 more pitches,” manager Ken Macha said. “I think that will perhaps help him get in the groove he needs to get in.”
