Kotchman, Wrigley, Anderson, Canzler, Vogt, Sheridan, Sweeney ... too many bodies. Specifically, they need to decide between Anderson and Kotchman - one or the other, but not both. They signed these guys (and J.J. Ruiz also, since released) knowing they might/would lose Pena. Well, it looks like neither is an upgrade to what they already have. Keeping both just takes ABs away from younger guys who need to be playing every day at AAA or AA and still have plenty of upside.
Add Carter to your list. Let's see, subtract Crawford and Pena, and add Damon, Ramirez, Kotchman, Canzler, Carter and Fuld. Someone clearly failed arithmetic in elementary school.
Stacy Long has six minor leaguers who are no longer listed on the minor league spring training roster: Jonah Bayliss Aaron Dott Justin Garcia Jake SullivanSeth Henry Kyle LussonNothing official yet that they have been released, but not a good sign. Did see Bayliss as official at tbo, but not the other 5.
Rays sent Inglett to the Astros on Sunday for a PTBNL or cash.
how do i see the spring training roster for the minor league teams? can you post that on here?
Stacy Long of the Montgomery advertiser posted these lineups for Monday 3/28. I am sure there will be changes when final decisions are made at the end of spring training, but this will give you an idea.Monday lineups Woke up to a steady rain this morning and the skies are still overcast. Since the Rays have had idyllic spring weather to this point, one bigwig has playfully accused me of bringing the showers with me.The Rays play the Orioles in minor league exhibitions today (weather permitting, of course). The higher levels travel to Sarasota and the Class A's are in Port Charlotte. With the major leaguers around for just today, I may skip the Sarasota trip to get the few of those guys I still need.TRIPLE-AJennings cfRuggiano rfLopez 3bKotchman 1bChirinos cCarter lfGuyer dhCanzler dhFurmaniak 2bOlmedo ssAnderson, Mayora, Lobaton on the benchDOUBLE-ANommensen, rfBeckham ssVogt c (Jefferies in the 7th)Sweeney dh (1b in the 6th)Figueroa 2bCipriano 3b (Sexton 6th)Sheridan 1b (dh in 6th)Kand lf (Cohen in 6th)Biell cfDavis dhHIGH-CLASS ALee ss (Estrada in the 7th)Bortnick 2b (Lawson in 7th)Wunderlich 1bThomas c (Segovia in 7th)Morrison cfGuillen dh (lf in 6th)Price 3bBryles rfJones lf (dh in 6th)Acosta dhLOW-CLASS AKiermaier cfGuevara 2b (Luis in the 7th)Dietrich ss (Querecuto in 7th)Schwaner 3b (dh in 6th)Bailey c (Holloway in 6th)Malm 1bGlaesmann rfRogers lf (Fogle in 7th)Depew dhTinoco dh (3b in 6th)posted by Stacy Long at 8:30 AM 0 Comments
Talked to Stacy yesterday at the field. So glad he is back here in Port Charlotte. I love his column and all his lineups, updates, etc. Thanks Stacy~leep up the good work!
What about Wrigley, Scelfo and Valasquez?
They could be with the big-league club to come in as late-inning replacements for tonight's game.
Kevin - Good catch ... I didn't think of that.
