Leone, Scott to make team

After an excellent showing in Spring Training, Justin Leone will make the Major League team for Opening Day 2007. Leone hit .442 with 6 doubles, 3 homers, and 10 RBI's in just 43 at-bats, totaling for a 1.259 OPS. He will serve as the back-up to Hank Blalock.

Additionally, outfielder Luke Scott will make the Opening Day 2007 roster, after compiling a .304 average, 2 homers, 8 RBI's and a .912 OPS in 56 at-bats. While his offense is not a question, his defense is. With Carl Crawford anchored in left field, it is uncertain whether or not Scott can make the transition to center field.

The team has been considering Chris Burke as a possible option for center field. Burke is hitting .286 in 42 at-bats.
