Split-squad action: Pregame notes

Gio Gonzalez is taking the hill here at Phoenix Muni today, while Josh Outman will start the team’s split-squad game in Peoria against the Padres. Here’s who will be joining each of them:

HOME

Crisp CF
Ellis 2B
Matsui DH
Jackson 1B
Carter LF
Donaldson C
Timmons 3B
Taylor RF
Sogard SS
Gonzalez P

Also scheduled to pitch: Grant Balfour, Jerry Blevins, Willie Eyre, Brian Fuentes, Tyson Ross

AWAY

Pennington SS
Barton 1B
DeJesus DH
Willingham LF
Kouzmanoff 3B
Suzuki C
Miller CF
Carson RF
Tolleson SS
Outman P

Also scheduled to pitch: Joe Bateman, Bobby Cramer, Danny Farquhar, Trystan Magnuson, Yadel Marti

Pennington’s on the road because the Padres have a righty (Mat Latos) going, and Geren would rather have Pennington swing from the left side since he’s not quite swinging with equal intensity from the right side yet because of his shoulder. He’ll get at least two at-bats today — maybe three — and will likely continue to play every other day, depending on how he feels.
