What is Rios' role now?

Postby Big Pimpin » Sun May 07, 2006 10:39 am

Is he an every day player? I know he's been leading off now, even vs. RHP, but I'm curious about what you guys in the know think. Is he playing everyday now and Hinske is just on the bench? I guess I'm basically wondering if he's a guy that you still have to check the lineup every day to see if he's playing or not, or if he's pretty much an every day player.

Seems every day to me, but maybe you guys know something I don't...

Thanks.

Go Jays! :-B

Rios has been pulling away from the platoon situation each and every day he plays. He's tweaked his swing in ST and it looks like it's helped him a lot. Gibbons will keep Rios playing in RF for the most part but he'll get the occasional day off. Hinske will mostly play for matchups and how he's done against some pitchers, but it looks like we have our new starting RF. Expect plenty of RBI oppertunities from Rios with the Jays lineup.

Good luck. ;-D

Go_Jays_Go just about summed it up right there. Rios has only sat 1 game of the last 16, so he's basically the starting RF, barring any huge struggles.
