Jon Switzer took the line drive from Andy Marte off the underside of his right wrist, just below the glove. X-rays came back negative, according to the Rays, but Switzer is still undergoing tests late this afternoon. Joe Maddon said it wasn’t a case of a player being removed from the game strictly as a spring training precaution.

“I don’t think so,” said Maddon. “I think he was coming out. I think the baseball logo was on his hand, pretty much. It was not good – he got hit pretty hard. He was hurt.”

While Switzer was not in the clubhouse, tomorrow’s starting lineup was posted. The nine slated to represent the Rays at historic McKechnie Field are: Zobrist SS, Mohr CF, Young RF, Gomes LF, Cantu 2B, Iwamura 3B, Choi 1B, Navarro C, Kazmir P. Subject to change, as always.

Jon Switzer Did not look good last year and looks just as bad this year. 40 games 33 innings 38 hits 19 runs 19 walks to 18 strikeouts not good. Time to dump him for one of our prospects
