Rays Spring Training March 5

Alex Colome has still not been able to report to camp due to visa problems. Kevin Cash was asked if this has become a problem at this juncture.

“Colome is getting his work in [in the Domican Republic],” Cash said. “We know that. … As I’ve said the whole time, we’d like to have him here, but I don’t think it’s fair to punish a guy for being held up.”

Colome is competing to earn the No. 5 spot in the Rays rotation.

Cash explained that he talked to the umpires during the game about the variations of when the time clock starts between innings. There is less time on the clock when pitcher leaves the dugout to take the mound as opposed to coming in from the bullpen.

Cash on Kevin Kiermaier’s throw from center field that nailed Chris Parmalee in the second inning: “Kiermaier’s throw. That was, wow!”
