16 position players and 17 pitchers remain in camp. Assuming a constant roster, the remaining decisions are narrowing to just a few.
If the team keeps 11 pitchers, then Cody McKay and Rick Ankiel would be the likely final position player cuts, with both Abraham Nunez and Hector Luna making the team. If 12 pitchers are kept, then Luna looks to be the odd man out.
In the 12-pitcher scenario, two of these five would make the team. Otherwise, only one would come north. The final pitching combatants are Randy Flores, Randy Myers, Carmen Cali, plus non-roster invitees Kevin Jarvis and Bill Pulsipher.
A Monday Post-Dispatch story quotes Dave Duncan as saying the team will break camp with seven pitchers in the pen. That strongly implies that Luna and Nunez may both have made the team or another player will be added. It also means that only one of the five pitchers on the bubble will come north. P-D link
