Devil-Rays Mixing & Matching Roster
The Tampa Bay Devil Rays made a pair of moves today. First, they claimed outfielder Chris Snelling from the Oakland Athletics. Snelling has yet to have a season in which he's had more than 96 AB's, so his health is the main concern with the left-fielder. He has shown a great eye, as his career OBP is .357. If he can stay healthy for a season, i'm sure he can have a very good .260 15HR 60RBI season.
They than flip-flopped and released reliever Jay Witasick, who was horrible in Tampa, after posting a 3.60 ERA for the A's in the first half. His 12ER's in only 16.1 gave him a 6.61 ERA in 20 games. He's also 35 years-old, so his major league service might have came to an end.
