I thought for sure he was going to be part of the pen to start the season. Wonder what this means?

It's beyond ridiculous with this guy. Either he is a complete and total dumb jock, clubhouse cancer, pain in the rear, or the organization just doesn't like him.

What, Leroux is SO valuable and it's so hard to get comparable "just a guy" bullpen arms like him that he should make the 25 man roster over a former top draft pick like Morris? I don't see it and I don't get it.

“That's the unfortunate part about decisions this late in camp — sometimes (options) come into play when there's not clear separation,” general manager Neal Huntington said. “There's very little doubt Bryan is going to help us at some point this summer. It allows him to go down and refine some things. When he does that, he's doing to be a very good major league pitcher for a long time.”
