In the first two games of the spring, we have seen solid pitching from the staff, especially some of the younger arms that are here in camp.

This afternoon, the Rays will have right-hander Elvin Rodriguez on the bump to start the game against the Orioles, and for fans, you hope to see some solid innings out of your younger guys, especially since this is the last start, we will see some of these younger arms in the system start for a few days, as the staff flips to the regulars out of the rotation.

If we could see another solid performance like we have seen from Cooper Criswell, Mason Montgomery, and Taj Bradley this afternoon, Rays fans should be happy after seeing some of these younger prospects succeed, especially against some solid big-league bats.
