     As to his injury and making the opening day roster Podsednik said, “I don’t know it’s tough to answer..a lot of things can happen between now and the end of March.”
     Manager John Farrell said of Podsednik, “He’s still competing for a spot on the opening day roster.”
     The 34-year old Podsednik prefers to play left or center field but will have competition there.
