Rays Have Little To Spend

ESPN’s Keith Law has some Rays info in today’s blog.  He says the Rays want to address holes at right field and DH, but are willing to use a platoon in one of those spots.  They don’t have much money to spend.

Cork Gaines at Rays Index projected the ’09 payroll, arriving at $54.5MM.  A few million could be saved if the arb-eligible Edwin Jackson is traded for a cheaper player.  What kind of payroll increase are the Rays comfortable with?  They were at $43.7MM on opening day.  My Pat Burrell prediction may be unreasonable.
