Orvella & McClung sent down to minors.Who's the Rays closer?

Postby kemper5 » Fri Mar 30, 2007 1:05 pm

Saw it on Rotoworld.. Here is there take

Chad Orvella-R-Devil Rays Mar. 30 - 12:31 pm et


Devil Rays optioned RHP Chad Orvella to Triple-A Durham and reassigned 1B Carlos Pena to minor league camp.

Orvella had the best numbers of any Rays reliever this spring, allowing one run on seven hits and four walks in 10 1/3 innings. It was not only a showing that should have earned him a roster spot, but it should have made him one of the options to close. Instead, the Rays want to go with guys more capable of throwing mulitple innings at a time in Jae-Kuk Ryu, Brian Stokes and Gary Glover. Orvella would be better than any of them when he's throwing strikes, and since that's what he did this spring, it's a shame the Rays aren't carrying him.



Seth McClung-R-Devil Rays Mar. 30 - 12:34 pm et


Devil Rays optioned RHP Seth McClung to Triple-A Durham.

The door was wide open for McClung, but he took himself out of the closer's role and then threw away his roster spot by giving up 12 runs and 18 hits in 9 1/3 innings. He'll get another chance at some point during the season, but the Rays have to be just about out of patience with the 26-year-old. His results haven't come anywhere near matching his stuff.


Who is the Closer now? Salas, Reyes, Camp?

TB Rays

they are an insane org,,, instead of using the kid with the good stuff , and great spring number ,so they could build closer value. they send him down to the minors , and will use Reyes, an older guy , who has 6 career saves, and coming off injury,,,pfffttt
with that being said,, i picked him up

I'm guessing committee, which is pretty troublesome for fantasy purposes. I wouldn't make a move on this now in terms of picking anyone up.

Al Reyes will get the first shot, and if he falters, it's Shawn Camp's shot next.

Camp? He stinks. Brian Stokes after Al Reyes.

Your more than welcome to post where Camp will be the "setup" man

closer watch has it as a committe of stokes, salas and reyes in that order, i think theres a chance that salas takes the job and runs with it, in the minors last year he went:

in AA
0.00 ERA, 0.78 WHIP, 52 Ks in 34.2 IP (14 saves)

in AAA
1.57 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, 33 Ks in 28.2 IP

and hes been pitching pretty well in ST, if I was gonna take a flier on one of these guys itd probably be him
