LAKELAND, Fla. (94-7 THE FAN) — Newcomer Mark Melancon not only lockers between the more outgoing Jared Hughes and Jason Grilli but could end up pitching between them in late-game situations.

After a 1-2-3 inning against the top of the Detroit order in Saturday’s 4-1 loss to the Tigers, Melancon says he’s fitting in nicely with his new teammates.

He says he may have a few jokes in store, especially for Grilli, despite his soft spoken nature.

“I use that to my advantage,” Melancon smiles.
