Nice. With the health back to full status and hopefully the pitch count not limited anymore, I am thinking he shows us why he was just a few years ago one of the top pitching prospects in the game. He is definitely worthy of being our #4 SP imo with a good spring.

He is a darkhorse to take a spot. The problem is that E-Jax is out of options and so is Hammel and the Rays seemed determined to have them still around

ST. PETERSBURG -- Rays outfielder Rocco Baldelli is going on the disabled list for an indefinite period due to an abnormality that has kept him in a constant stage of fatigue.
Baldelli said he had some type of "metabolic, and/or mitochondrial abnormalities, basically along the lines my body isn't making or producing ATP the right way, and therefore not allowing my muscles to work as they should and recover like they're supposed to on a day-to-day basis."

Rays executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman told reporters the Rays will stick by Baldelli to the best of their abilities to help him out in whatever way they can. Friedman also said Baldelli's condition will likely lead to the Rays not picking up the outfielder's option for the 2009 season.

Under the terms of the long-term contract Baldelli signed after the 2005 season, the Rays have until April 1 to decide whether to pick up his $6 million option for 2009. If the Rays decline, they must pay him $4 million, and Baldelli would become a free agent at the end of the 2008 season. If they exercise the option, the Rays would then have to face the same question of whether to renew him for '10 and '11 at a cost of $17 million, or buy him out at $2 million.

Friedman said the Rays will soon begin addressing what they will do without Baldelli, who was being counted on to be part of a "right-field triangle" with Cliff Floyd and Jonny Gomes, in which two of the three would play right field and DH on a daily basis.


Begining of the end I am afraid :,-(

Maybe it is not the end of his career. At least we can hope not.

This is hurts, but at least it wasn't out of no where. They have been playing without him for over two years now, so I guess they are used to it.

It still sucks though.
