His defense has been astounding so you'd think that earns him a lot of playtime even if the hitting doesn't keep up.

I picked this guy up tonight after watching him shred the redsox. Ok, maybe that's being generous, but has anyone seen the minor league numbers on this kid?

http://www.baseball-reference.com/minor ... ld--001sam

Over 4 seasons in AAA, he had 121BB : 78K ratio with a .273/.368/.400 slash line. Yes, there's no power there, but he's a text book gap to gap hitter and knows how to get on base where he can use his speed (rated a 70 on an 80 scale). The rays clearly need a lead off hitter right now while they wait on Jennings, and Joyce couldn't hit the side of a barn with a ten foot pole at the moment.

I'm riding this hot streak and seeing where it takes me.

Up by 11 runs in the 9th inning, hits one to the green monster and takes second base instead of stopping for the single. Nice, haha
