  1. Charles says:

    Is it possible we could see coinciding promotions for Jennings & Joyce in the near future? Right now both guys look like they belong at a level above where they are right now.

    • I think that is exactly where we are heading, but the Rays need to open a spot at the big league level first which means moving Gross or Kapler.

      • Jason says:

        Then the answer would be Gross to stay with Maddon's righty/lefty platoon. At this point, they both probably derserve the promotions but not sure the Rays are in any hurry.

    • Joe D. says:

      How could they promote Jennings, he's in a slump now, at least by his standards, 0-3 that brings his avg down to .391 and slg down to .627
