How They’re Doing #3

The Rays are now 6-6 in the spring.

Several prospective Bulls are doing very well. Jon Weber leads the non-roster list with 22 at-bats, an average of .364 and leads the team in RBIs with 10. Elliot Johnson is also doing well with an average of .333 in 21 at-bats, 6 RBIs, and 3 homers. Chris Richard is getting a good bit of playing time with 19 at-bats, an average of .316 and 3 RBIs. Reid Brignac finally got a couple of hits, bringing his average up to .130 in 23 at-bats. And Fernando Perez (more later) is hitting .211 in 19 at-bats, with 4 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Complete stats here.

In yesterday’s game Perez hurt his wrist going after a fly ball. He could be out for at least a week, according to the Rays website. Reporting in the St. Petersburg Times discusses the impact that may have on where he goes at the beginning of the season.

In the same article we hear that several players have been taken off the Rays roster and sent to minor league camp. Since it's in the same location (Port Charlotte), guess that means moving your gear out of one locker and into another nearby. Of interest to Bulls fans are two pitchers, Chad Orvella and Calvin Medlock. Neither pitcher got much time with the Rays this spring. Orvella got 2.2 innings and Medlock got 2.1.
