Sox CF competition

Maybe this doesn't deserve it's own diary, but according to the trib Ozzie apparently likes Terrero a lot

Podsednik's return could mean more playing time in center for Darin Erstad, who has been splitting his time between left and center.

Of more interest is that Podsednik's return could increase the competition between Brian Anderson and Luis Terrero for an outfield spot.

Terrero, 26, has impressed Guillen and launched a home run off Frank Francisco that easily cleared the center-field fence in the Sox's 12-8 victory over Texas.

Terrero is a lifetime .235 hitter over parts of four major-league seasons and can play all three outfield positions. He is out of options and must clear waivers if he doesn't make the Opening Day roster, while Anderson has all three major-league options.

Guillen didn't envision a scenario in which Terrero and Anderson both would make the 25-man roster.

"It's my opinion if Brian doesn't make this club as a starter, he has to go to the minor leagues," Guillen said.

"Personally, this kid needs to develop and get his at-bats. He's not a platoon player yet or a backup. It's not fair for him to do that."

Anyone think Anderson has a shot to start the season with the Sox? I sure don't. Terrero is clearly the kind of player Guillen would like (some speed, good D, can't hit, laid down a bunt). And there's no way Erstad will be on the Sox bench. I was hoping for at least a platoon of BA/Erstad. But that's not happening.

I didn't realize Terrero was out of options. I think that makes him a lock for the big league club.
