Tampa Bay Rays Claim R.J. Swindle

New, 74 comments

Excuse me while I do backflips.

Swindle is a side-arming LOOGY. I've had a thing for him for a while. He's never gotten a chance in the majors but he throws a low-80s fastball, a slider and change in the low-70s, and a 'curve' in the 55-60 MPH range. In 244 lefties faced in the minors he allowed 0 home runs, walked 16, and struck out 105.
