Quick Hits: Fontenot, Rays, Carpenter

It’s Opening Day, part IV. Enjoy these links as the season openers continue around the Major Leagues…

  • Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle hears the Blue Jays or Phillies could be a landing spot for free agent infielder Mike Fontenot (Twitter link).
  • Rays owner Stuart Sternberg told Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com that the Rays have considerable off-field issues, though the team is an annual contender (Twitter link). "Winning hasn't cured the ills," Sternberg said.
  • The Cardinals aren't close to having a timetable on injured right-hander Chris Carpenter, Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com tweets. As long as Roy Oswalt’s a free agent, he’ll be an option for the Cardinals.

What would the Jays do with Fontenot? Vizquel already made the team as the utility infielder, we just let Valbuena go via waivers, and McCoy is always in AAA waiting to fill in if there are injuries.

The best place for Fontenot would be the Reds few lh abs right now and he has power ,runs a little, but Baker would nix deal.
