Gomes and Joey: Up and Down and Up

New, 3 comments

The Devil Ray outfield duo of Gomes and Gathright benefited by extra time with AAA Bulls.

"There's nothing wrong with bringing up a kid, give them an opportunity, give them a taste, let him see what it's like, then sending him back out to work on some things and then bringing them back," said Rays manager Lou Piniella. "They're a little more ready, a little more acclimated and they're a little hungrier to stay."

...

They're here now, and proving they belong. But oh, were they upset when the Rays sent them back to Durham, first in spring training, then at different points during the season.

Sure seems whatever is going on in Durham is helping players. These two are examples. Waechter and McClung are other examples.
