Our Major League Baseball Insider Grant McAuley joined The Morning Show with John Fricke and Hugh Douglas live from Orlando on Monday to talk about the team’s first Grapefruit league game against the Yankees.

McAuley said “probably not” when asked if prospect Ronald Acuña would be on the opening day roster, although he had a great at-bat against the Yankees.

As far as pitching, McAuley said Mike Foltynewicz looked good Sunday but his control over pitches will be something to watch leading up to the regular season.
