Sam Fuld

Sam Fuld was slated for a minor role after fading in the second half last season, but now the Rays will have to find a new backup outfielder.

Fuld is scheduled for wrist surgery tomorrow and is expected to miss 4-5 months, putting his entire season in jeopardy. He originally suffered the injury in September.

Fuld became a cult hero in Tampa Bay by hitting .350 with speed and great defense through his first 23 games, but then batted just .202 with a .580 OPS in his final 84 games.

    Damn. He was not that great of a player but he played with all heart and sometimes that’s more fun to watch. He made the best catch I have even seen and it was a critical one too, it was last year against the White Sox for our first win of the year, IMO it is better than most robbed home runs.

      That was an incredible catch. Have ou heard the White Sox annoucer. “You gotta be bleepin me”
