Falvey touched on his pitching depth and the expectations that come with being the defending A.L. Central Division champs.

Outside of a bullpen spot, there isn’t much competition in camp. The recent acquisition of OF Manuel Margot is expected to result in Austin Martin starting the season at AAA-St. Paul. However, recall that guys like Eddie Julien, Matt Wallner, and Bailey Ober made a big impact last year after not being on the Opening Day roster.

In other words, the roster on Opening Day will see a ton of fluctuation throughout the 162-game season. That means INF Brooks Lee, along with Martin, will very likely make their Major League debuts at some point this year.
