Your Saturday night links, with more to come…

  • Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com takes a look at the Cardinals' third base race.  Brian Barden appears doubtful to win the job, however temporary it may be, despite a .344 spring record.
  • Yankees manager Joe Girardi could decide to start the season without a designated long reliever, according to Peter Abraham of The Journal NewsAlfredo Aceves, Dan Giese and Brett Tomko would be the casualties of that decision.
  • Dmitri Young told Chico Harlan of the Washington Post that he plans to be on the Nationals' 25-man roster when the team heads north.
  • Josh Barfield has claimed the Indians' final roster spot.  His versatility apparently won him the job.
