Rays acquire minor league catcher

Per mlbtraderumors.com: http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2013/03/tigers-retain-rights-to-lobstein-outright-him-to-double-a.html Seems a decent return for Lobstein, although Casali was a bit...

Is this likely? In the Bowling Green game today, the box score says that the 4 BG pitchers did the following; Floethe: 5 IP, 31 pitches, 30 strikes (3 H, 6 Ks) Carpenter: 1 IP, 4 pitches, 4 strikes (1 H) Partridge: 2 IP, 7 pitches, 7 strikes (1 H) Hubbard: 1 IP, 7 pitches, 7 strikes (2 Ks) No DPs are mentioned. Incidentally, the 3 South Bend pitchers were almost as efficient.

Hak-Ju Lee We were at the Charlotte/Tampa game last night. Lee walked twice and hit a booming triple in extra innings, but that is not what impressed us. It was seeing him play shortstop. He made a number of wonderful plays, two on grounders deep in the hole that he played perfectly and one line drive up the middle that he snow coned due to quick reflexes and terrific timing. He also made a nice play on a grounder up the middle. He looks so smooth out there, and everything seems effortless. He always gets into a good position to throw. On those balls in the hole, he got behind them so he could set and throw. They were not easy plays. It took quickness to avoid having to backhand them and end up moving the wrong way.

If people are not reading Steve's articles in the St. Pete Times, appearing every other Sunday, I recommend you do. They introduce progressive analytical concepts in a non-threatening manner and are exceptionally well written and interesting. Incidentally, in one of Topkin's columns today he uses WAR as one means of evaluating a player's value.

Rumors of adding another player to spring roster _____________________________________ "* If the Rays do go ahead and add a player to the spring roster (as rumored), a name to keep in mind is INF/OF Joe Inglett, who played last season with Brewers. Inglett, 32, is another versatile player who would provide depth at a number of positions." __________________________________ Mentioned in the St. Pete Times and the Heater.
