Ned Yost media session: April 27
Manager Ned Yost began today’s media conference by addressing who will start tomorrow’s second game. Yost stated that Will Smith will be recalled tomorrow from Triple-A Omaha. Yost said that Smith has been performing very well in Omaha this season, and with the doubleheader’s “26th man”, it afforded him the opportunity to get Smith an appearance.
Yost then discussed the challenge of the recent rainouts in making personnel and lineup decisions. He also alluded to potential problems with a club having extra rest early in the season. He stated that the players need the repetition of playing games to build a rhythm and routine.
