No need for hope or a leap of faith,  @ty5592 is stating the facts.  He was sitting early on vs. some LHP because that's what a lot of MLB teams do to give their bench/platoon bats some PT.  To worry about him routinely sitting vs. LHP in a platoon situation is fear-mongering and a waste of energy and emotion.  

 

Sitting against a lefty. After an off day. And after a 2 week layoff. Lol. Thanks for the analysis btw.

The Rays know what they are doing.  Putting your fantasy team aside this lineup makes a ton of sense.

 

+1, i dont mind him sitting vs elite LHP and K-leb has been just that this season

oh wow DUH didnt even notice

 

@ MIA so no Dh vs one of the tougher LHP in MLB this year?

 

easy sit for the Rays and give the thumb a breather 

 

Didn't realize it was @MIA. 

I'm officially lowering my pitchfork and hoping for a 7th inning substitution

How do you figure?  If he got subbed for a defensive player he could easily see 2 AB’s.  I don’t see it happening though.

Yea if your banking on 2 AB's, like you were saying dont hold your breathe hah but i can easily see a pinch hit appearance for those with no bench bats to put in

The ray's have removed Meadows from the game when facing a lefty this year. It's happened at least twice this year. 

 

So I wouldn't be shocked if he pinch hit for Garcia if it was a big spot vs a righty.

 

More than likely he'll just get a pinch hit opportunity but these are the Rays we're talking about. They aren't afraid to make moves throughout the game.

Is the 3 hole ideal for this guy? I just noticed he is hitting in the 3-hole today, which I'm not quite sure is the right spot for him.

I just want him playing everyday in the top part of the line up..I don't really care where. If he's in the line up, he should produce.

With how he’s hitting he can bat anywhere 1 through 4 and I’ll be happy. I think he’d make a perfect 2 hole hitter but they like Pham there and honestly him and meadows could be swapped 1 or 2 with their skill sets. He’s been mashing at lead off so if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
