Bartlett off the DL, Ruggiano Right Back Down


Jason Bartlett returned to the starting line up today, which means Justin Ruggiano was sent right back down. Bartlett was supposed to have a two day stint at Durham, but was brought up early due to the weather.

I really wasn’t rushing for Bartlett to return to the line up personally; He was only hitting .231, with 1 hr and 22 RBI’s. Not really good numbers for a lead off man, especially with only 3 stolen bases to add to that.

I just hope Sean Rod’s hitting streak doesn’t come to an end with the return of Bartlett. He has been pure hotness since Bartlett has been on the DL. WIth the return of Bartlett, it looks like Rodriguez and Brignac will again be sharing time around the field and at DH possibly.
