"Last week was pretty big, with new guys joining the team," Merullo said. "We have 30 active players on the roster now, and last week we got [ninth-round draft pick, pitcher] Mitch Horacek and [23rd-round pick, pitcher] Donnie Hart. We got [20th-round pick] Nick Cunningham, who was able to get a couple innings under his belt these last few games. Mike Yastrzemski came to the team, too, and, you know, now we have our ballclub. Everybody has had a chance to get their feet wet, and that gives the coaching staff get a better understanding of who can do what."
