Almost a full house


BRADENTON, Fla. — All but three players have reported to camp. One of them, shortstop Gustavo Nunez, is on the 60-day DL and likely won’t check in for a while yet. Anderson Hernandez and Gorkys Hernandez have until Friday, when the first full-squad workout is held, to get here. Andrew McCutchen arrived this morning and was on the fields all day. Chase d’Arnaud walked into the clubhouse about a half-hour after position players finished their workouts today.
