Playing A Little Pepper

When will Desmond Jennings and Evan Longoria be back?

We finally have some good news on Jennings. According to Joe Smith, Jennings will start a rehab assignment tomorrow and hopes to rejoin the Rays on Tuesday. Longo is more of a mystery. He has taken batting practice. But according to Joe Maddon, he is still 3 weeks from “real activity.” That would be followed by a rehab assignment. At this point, we might be looking at after the All-Star break….SOON FOR FLASH, NOT SO SOON FOR LONGO

    Maddon is going to sink the ship...trying to prove he is right hitting Pena 1st... there is no common sense or baseball reason to do that.... the guy ought to be hitting 9th right behind Molina..but then how are they going to rationalize that $7mil?

      Agree. Pena has no business hitting lead off. And why the hell is Elliot Johnson playing shortstop again. Dude is terrible. No range. Can't play position. I find it hard to believe that the Rays can't find a quality defensive shortstop.Put Rodriguez at short Zo at second and fill a spot in the outfield with somebody until Jennings gets back. This team is so weak up the middle. They can't continue with this lineup.
