Some highlights from his conversation:
In regards to Mike Pelfrey, Alderson said, while he and his staff are not sure what Pelfrey can bring from a qualitative standpoint, "We do know that he pitches through injury, he’ll pitch through pain and probably give you 200 innings." As such, "He probably would be one of five in most rotations."
In regards to the current roster, he said he is concerned about the team’s depth, as well as the organization’s depth at Triple-A.
In regards to Jordany Valdespin, Alderson said he can do things a lot of the other players can’t do. I don’t think he’s going to be on the club immediately," he explained. "But, I think he has a future with us and more than just a utility role."
