One going up, one going down

Damon Hollins

Oh how the mighty have fallen. After that hot, small sample size start Hollins has fallen down to .271/.321/.458. The average and OBP look like they may be sustainable but the power is still high for him. If the Rays are willing to bring Gathright up then they should do it now, Hollins is no longer an asset offensively and was never an asset defensively.

Rob Bell

6/29: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 0 HR
6/26: 1.2 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 2 HR
6/24: 1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 0 HR
6/21: 3 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 0 HR
6/10: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 4 R, 4 BB, 0 K, 9 HR

Those are Bell's five appearances at Durham. Since his first outing he hasn't walked anyone. He is still struggling some overall, I suspect that he's concentrating more on getting the balls in the strike zone than getting hitters to miss so they're probably hitting some good shots off of him. It looks like he has the control problems beat though and in the near future might deserve the chance to come back up and try to prove that he can be a better option than Hendrickson or Nomo.
