Yesterday, the Dominican court set a February 21 hearing date for the defense team's "challenge for cause" in "the case" against Uribe. Despite that Kenny said tonight that he expects Juan to arrive on time at Spring Training that begins on the 22nd:
"I expect him to be at Spring Training on time, and if he isn't, then I'll deal with it then. If he's there, great. If he's focused, great. If he's not there or not focused, then Alex Cintron has a heck of a chance to play every day. Either way, our position has been the same since Day 1. ... As long as he shows up on time and focused. Make that, on time, in shape and focused."
