Bartlett to Return Soon

From the Tampa Tribune:

ST. PETERSBURG - He doesn't expect to be quite back to full speed, but SS Jason Bartlett believes he will be ready to come off the disabled list when the Rays open a seven-game road trip Thursday at Kansas City.

Bartlett hasn't played since early July, and it's interesting to see the zone play data as Zobrist approaches 150 innings. Zobrist has only made two out of zone plays while Bartlett has 29 in 500+ more innings. Of the others to play shortstop for the Rays this season; Elliot Johnson, Andy Cannizaro, Evan Longoria, and Reid Brignac, none made an out of zone play. Clearly Bartlett's range will be welcomed back with open arms by the Rays pitching staff.
