Tampa Bay Rays Roster Rumble: Final Bench Spot – Brian O’Grady

The Tampa Bay Rays are in their second week of spring training and barreling toward the season. There are still a few roster spots they need to get lined out this spring. Today we take a look at a position that could be up for grabs this spring.

Final Bench Spots

To me, it appears that the Rays have 12 spots very likely to be locked up for their Opening Day roster:

  1. Austin Meadows
  2. Kevin Kiermaier
  3. Ji-Man Choi
  4. Jose Martinez
  5. Yoshitomo Tsutsugo
  6. Hunter Renfroe
  7. Manuel Margot

With the new 26-man rosters in effect, teams can carry a maximum of 13 pitchers.
