TAMPA, Fla. — Brian Bogusevic said Saturday, As of right now, theyve explained Im not going to be on the 25-man roster to start the season.
But that is every one of the 30-year-old outfielder knows for certain.
Im in limbo,Inches Bogusevic admitted.
He may be released, he or she be designated for work, and there is still a possibility, nonetheless remote, that he will be on the Marlins Opening Day team.
I think there are still some things that can happen over the next day or two, Bogusevic said. Its area of the game. It happens. You handle it.
Although the Marlins made up their particular mind on Thursday about Bogusevic not making the Opening Time roster, they are keeping him around as protection, in the event they are struck by an additional unexpected injury.
As we saw the other day [with the Ed Lucas injury], you never fully realize, manager Mike Redmond explained. Things can change in a short amount of time. Most of these last few games are always a little dicey. You never really know soon you pack the car and scalp south.
Well see how it goes the next couple of days. Well set the roster on Sunday.
Bogusevic, who was acquired in a trade with your Cubs in December intended for Justin Ruggiano, is out of options along with would have to be designated regarding assignment and clear waivers prior to a Marlins could send him to Triple-A — assuming he is willing to move.
I hope some team may pick me up, he said. But your closer you get to Opening Day time, the more unlikely it is.
Asked in case he would be willing to go to Triple-A, while using Marlins or some other team, Bogusevic said, I never have even thought about it. I dont know what my options could well be right now.
Bogusevic, who was viewed by the Marlins as a left-handed-hitting backup outfielder, was a disappointment this spring, batting only .174 with an on-base percentage of .188, a walk and 10 strikeouts in 47 denture appearances.
Im not entirely where I want to be, Bogusevic publicly stated.
With the Cubs last period, Bogusevic batted .273 with six home goes and 16 RBIs in Forty seven games.
