Word is Matt Moore is progressing well and should be back in June. Jake McGee is apparently ahead of schedule as well.

Basically talks are dead. Both sides say they are open to continuing the conversation. But nothing new has developed.

Ha. Hopefully no one.

It's looking like we'll be rolling Franklin out at second and Cabrerra at short.

I believe we are set...maybe Jennings, but not likely

And Evan isn't going anywhere...Everyone keeps saying that, but we'd be committing fan suicide if we did plus we would be selling low if we dealt him now.....maybe in a few years, but not any time soon

The only person we may actually move is DeJesus if we can find someone who will take him.

Pretty much what I was thinking. If there was the slightest bit of interest he'd be long gone.

In all seriousness.....I think it IS a Harry Carey shirt

Cause that's EXACTLY how he ordered his first round at bars (as the legend goes)

Barkeeper would ask of what and we say he didn't care just a shot and a Coors chaser

Pretty devastating to have your top 3 starters shelved at the start of the season. Unless Odorizzi makes a quantum leap and we get a little lucky, we could be all but out of it by the time Cobb, Smyly, and Moore are pitching.

Cobb and Smyly aren't supposed to be out long right? I think Odorizzi will be fine. He seemed to get better as the season went on last year. I'd expect that to continue, not worried about him. The one I'm hoping takes a step forward and pitches well is Nate Karns. He's looked pretty good this spring.

As of yesterday, neither was pitching from a mound. Likely they both start the year on the DL and neither is expected back before April 14 (the first day this season that the Rays would need a 5th starter). Knowing the Rays, it'll be May before we see both of them back... at the earliest.
