Homer, Error for DeWitt

Blake DeWitt still hasn’t locked up the starting second baseman job because of, and in spite of, what he did Sunday.

DeWitt homered and raised his average to .371, but he also committed an error on a routine back-hand play that led to an unearned run. Despite his offense, DeWitt has not been “anointed” the stater by manager Joe Torre because he hasn’t fully dispelled doubts about his ability to handle defense at second base. It was DeWitt’s third error of the spring.

He finally was involved in a double-play, but still has not turned a double-play pivot this spring. — Ken Gurnick
