Too many lefties at ST?

First fanpost... go easy on me.

Recently several pitchers were dispatched to the minors from ST. Ion Ostland was no surprise. However, whats more shocking to me is the fact that we're still providing audition innings to the other remaining LOOGY's we brought to camp. It seems to me that we are paying Trever Miller and also new arrival Dennys Reyes. I assume this implies that we have made the decision who the two lefties in the pen will be. Therefore, I do not understand why since thursday Charlie Manning has had 2 appearances, Royce Ring has had 1, and Ian Ostland was also given 1.

It seems to me that there is no chance any of these three will be making the major league club out of ST. Its also apparent that there is a VERY IMPORTANT competition for closer along with the investigation of ryan franklin as a rotation/swing man candidate. For these reasons I can not understand or justify giving any more innings this spring to Charlie Manning or Royce Ring.  Can someone shed some light as to why this is continuing to happen despite the fact that there is mutch to be learned about the state of the actually relevant players in ST?
