Ned Yost media session: August 15
Short and Sweet
On a day when it’s actually nice to be outside for more than five minutes, the media did not have many questions to ask during Ned Yost’s pregame interview. He did discuss Gil Meche’s potential return to the mound, saying the former starter could fit into the bullpen, which would help limit his shoulder problems. Yost also said Meche is getting closer to a rehab assignment after a 30-pitch session this morning, if the club chooses to go that route. When asked about the 2011 season for Meche, Yost said that as of today, he’d be leaning toward having the right-hander pitch as a reliever.
The manager also briefly discussed Kila Ka’aihue’s performance, saying he can’t make a judgment about Ka’aihue because the rookie is still settling in and adjusting to new pitchers and a new overall experience.
