Francisco Cordero, David Weathers, Mike Stanton and Jeremy Affeldt are the locks to make the bullpen.
In the case of Stanton and Affeldt, their $3 million salaries have a lot to do with it. But that’s the way baseball works.
I still think Jared Burton makes it, despite a rough spring.
Here’s my depth chart for the remaining relievers in camp:
1. Todd Coffey
2. Bill Bray
3. Kent Mercker
4. Mike Lincoln
5. Jim Brower
6. Jose Capellan.
Brower and Capellan have no shot. It’s too close to call among the other four.
Lincoln’s an interesting guy. He’s throwing 94 after two “Tommy John” surgeries and three years off. But he had a bad outing Saturday (1 IP, 3 hits, 2 runs). Each outing is big for the bubble guys now.
Coffey, by the way, has given up one hit and struck out six in 6 2/3 innings this spring.
