I really meant to write more but time got away from me.
Here is a quick synopsis of the topics that I should have covered:
There is still no time table for Hermida's return to the team but it could be as early as this weekend or possibly in the middle of next week. Once he returns, he will start in right - well, duh.
Jacobs isn't taking batting practice in order to help his injured thumb heal. The medical staff thinks his injury could be an ongoing problem for much of the season.
Abercrombie should see his first start in center on Saturday.
I really should write the baseball stuff first. Live and learn.
