Smith: Rays May Hold Shields/Garza Back in Spring 09

Good stuff from Joe Smith of the St. Pete Times:

That will allow them to make their first spring starts a week to 10 days later, with their appearances likely taken by the likes of RHPs Jeff Niemann, Mitch Talbot and Wade Davis. Hickey said the Rays could bring a few more pitchers to camp to accommodate the workload.

Smith also mentions the Rays seem to have some interest in Raul Ibanez and some notes on Rocco/Percival.
