Tampa Bay Infield Situation Once Iwamura Returns?

Postby Diggs » Thu May 10, 2007 7:40 am

Iwamura should be returning from the DL very soon barring no setbacks or extensions.

TB Homers:

What will happen with the Infield situation? Brendan Harris has been the everyday SS and has really been ripping the ball offensively. Does he continue to start everyday? Wiggington has been starting at 3rd; whose time does he cut into upon Iwamura's return? Etc.

Which player's playing time is going to get the biggest shaft here?

Pena will lose the majority of the playing time. Iwamura will go back to 3rd, with Wigginton shifting back to first base. Pena will go back to a reserve role playing once or twice a week.

Kind of what I expected to hear. So Brendan Harris at SS is safe, huh? :-°

Iwamura was to miss 4-6 weeks as of 4/25, last I heard. That would put us barely over 2 weeks into the injury... maybe I missed an update?

Well,

Maybe I missed an update because his Yahoo player page says "15 day DL" as of April 24th. Now that I count it .... that has already been 17 days. :-?

Yes, he is out 4-6 weeks. Don't expect him to be back anytime in the next two weeks.

This is correct, and Raiders hit it on the head in his above post. Harris will remain the starting SS, probably for the rest of the season. I wouldn't be surprised to see Pena get some more time though b/c he defense at 1B is sooo much better than Wiggy

I just dropped Stephen Drew for Brendan Harris. Brendan is hitting the ball now. Drew might have all the tools for a great career but his adjustments to major league pitching is coming along extremely slow and this IS NOT a keeper league. :-P
