Avisail Garcia spoke with beat writers on a conference call on Sunday, where he said All The Right Things. But the conversation with Garcia prompted questions about his timetable to Robin Ventura, who said:
"I don't see a move (Monday), but once we get home and everyone gets together and starts discussing what's going to happen from here on out, you never know what's going to happen," Ventura said.
"Even last year we saw him play quite a few times, and you're just looking forward to seeing what you've got," Ventura said. "We've seen him from afar, but it's always different when you see him on your team and how he fits in and how you'll use him."
