Jackson and Hammel, though, are out of options and likely will make the Opening Day roster in one role or another barring a complete collapse.(This morning's Tribune)
I am not sure why all of the focus goes to these 2 guys. Sure they are younger and have some projection left but the reason they are out of options is because they have used up their 6 MiLB or 3 MLB seasons which sounds like a lot of exposure already. And should not the focus be on performance and not projection anyway at the MLB level?
By my count, Balfour, Glover, and Dohmann are all out of options as well (RJ?). If so, why is this not mentioned in the 25 man calculus?
