Cuts and such

Three more cuts today, Youman, Burnett, and Gryboski. Burnett needs more time in AAA no matter how good he's looked this spring (he's got to prove he's past the point he was at last year) and Gryboski is just a roster filler. Youman is a bit more surprising. I thought between the way he pitched in September and the way he's pitched this spring, he'd be a lock for the team assuming Grabow starts the season on the DL. If that situation does play out, will Jim Tracy really open the season with Damaso Marte as his only lefty in the pen? Or will we have to endure Juan Perez?
