Baldelli - where will he hit?

Postby stumpak » Sun Aug 10, 2008 2:17 pm

Do any Rays fans have a sense of where he will hit? 4th? 5th? Lead-off?

He's always been decent for a part of the season...I wonder if he'll be a decent replacement for Crawford for the next few weeks

He probably can be. It would help the Rays even more if he could then platoon in RF with Hinske (a really good scenario for the Rays, because then Rocco only has to play a few days a week....)

Read in SI.com a quote from Maddon that Baldelli cannot play on consecutive days. If true, this really knocks down any potential value.

Here is the quote:

Baldelli's return caps a recovery that started on May 15, 2007. Baldelli missed the final 124 games of last season with a hamstring injury then missed all of this year with mitochondrial disorder, a condition that slows muscle recovery and causes fatigue.

He's had a pair of rehab assignments with Class-A Vero Beach and Double-A Montgomery, hitting a combined .257 with five homers and 16 RBIs in 24 games. Maddon knows he won't be able to play Baldelli in the outfield on consecutive days and was unsure just how long he'd last on Sunday.

Baldelli is a career .282 hitter in his sixth season with Tampa Bay.


"We'll see how it goes," he said.

It says he can't play OF on consecutive days. He could still DH on the others.

Baldelli is poised to be this summer's Rick Ankiel story. He just needs to hit. Alot.
