Tough break for Rashad, he played well and contributed. With Richard off and Rashad sent back, looks like Richard will be spending some time in the outfield.
Don't see why. 4 outfielders: Weber, Ruggiano, Joyce, Sadler. 6 infielders: Nowak, Richard, Hughes, Olmedo, Brignac, Mateo. At a guess, maybe Richard, Weber & Hughes rotating in dh slot.
Just noticed that Cromer is starting tonight. Is that some kind of clue about what may be coming from the Rays?
Right. There are many options Montoyo could use. I just think keeping Hughes could help them out. They could throw a split in there one day like such: Joyce DH or RF, Richard DH or LF/RF and Hughes 1B or DH. Many options they could use. Against lefties, Joyce is posting a .224 clip, Richard a .229 clip and Hughes a .333 clip. So we may see something like this many games to come.
Possibly. It's hard to figure out how the Rays think.
