Postscript on Porcello
Talking with GM Dave Dombrowski Friday, he did not want to put a specific level of probability on Porcello making the team:
“I don’t know that I can draw any summation,” Dombrowski said. “He’s out of A-ball. It’s not really most likely, but that’s why you go to spring training and you see what happens. It’s not likely. It’s not highly unlikely.”
The one condition Dombrowski did put on it is that Porcello will not make the team as a reliever. He will work as a starter, whether it’s in Detroit or at Erie or at Toledo.
