Stock Up: Josh Fleming

In making his case to be on the Opening Day roster, as some in the crowd might have prognosticated, Fleming has done as much as he could have this spring.

Powering through five innings of no run ball over three appearances this spring, Fleming has been credited with two wins while allowing only two hits.

An intriguing bullpen arm down the stretch of the 2020 season and into the postseason, the Rays would be wise to bring the lefty onto the roster to start their 2021 campaign and Fleming has done his part to be in that mix.
