Matt Joyce Might Be Worse in Center Than Previously Thought

Small sample size alert!

Don't read too much into these at all, but here's your early season UZR leaders:

Zobrist 1.7 runs

Gross 1.6

Crawford 1.4

Kapler 0.3

Pena 0.1

Longoria 0.0

And that's it for positives. The Rays as a team are 0.8, slightly above average. The Mariners lead the league with a UZR just over 5 combined. The others:

Bartlett -0.3

Iwamura -0.5

Joyce -3.5

So um, Joyce has been pretty awful in center field. Getting B.J. back tomorrow night is going to be a godsend.
