Playing A Little Pepper

Jake Odorizzi has not yet been officially added to the roster for tomorrow’s start. A corresponding move has yet to be announced…Tonight’s starter, Chris Archer, is 6-1 with a 1.72 ERA in 9 starts in which he has walked less than 3 batters. In the other 7 starts he is 1-4 with a 4.78 ERA…In the last 13 games, Rays catchers are 16-47 (.340) with 4 doubles, 1 triple, 2 home runs, and 10 runs batted in…Jesse Crain doesn’t sound any closer to returning, calling the pace of his rehab “frustrating.” I said it at the time, that Crain was no guarantee and people were a little too excited about his potential contributions.

    Does anyone know if Crain will be playoff eligible if he’s not on the 25 man roster on Sept 1? Do we have to fake some bogus injury to another player if he gets healthy by the playoffs?
