Desmond Jennings out for the rest of ’08



For all that has gone right for the Tampa Bay Rays organization, it was dealt a big blow as their 6th ranked prospect Vero Beach OF Desmond Jennings had surgery to repair his shoulder and will likely miss the rest of this season.  This news comes on the heels of discovering that LHP prospect Jake McGee will miss all of this season and next season recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Jennings has had a tough 2008, playing in only 24 games after missing much time to back and shoulder injuries.  When healthy, Jennings is a Carl Crawford-like player, but with his litany of injuries, he is someone to avoid buying or selling right now.  I am holding his cards in hopes that he will shake his injury issues to become the superstar he was tabbed to be.
