Rays' Cash: Desmond Jennings been on fire offensively all spring

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/27/15) It took 12 games for Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings to hit his first home run this spring, but despite the lack of home run power, the 28-year-old outfielder is still doing pretty well in Grapefruit League games.

Jennings, who hit a solo home run Thursday against the Yankees, is batting .483 (14 for 29) with two RBI, four runs, four walks and two stolen bases.

“He’s been on fire all spring, his at-bats, everything,” manager Kevin Cash said, per The Tampa Tribune. “The impressive thing is, the other day he didn’t have his best day, looked a little lot of sorts, but he came back two days after that and just erased it. He’s knocking balls all over the place.”

Desmond Jennings cranks out two singles in return to lineup

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/18/15) Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings returned to the starting lineup, batting sixth in Wednesday's 9-3 Grapefruit League win over Toronto. Jennings, who missed Tuesday's game with a stomach bug, went 2 for 2 with a pair of singles. He is hitting .563 this spring.

Rays OF Desmond Jennings scratched with stomach bug

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/17/15) Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings was scratched Tuesday afternoon because of a stomach bug, manager Kevin Cash told reporters, per the Tampa Bay Times. Jennings is hitting .500 (7 for 14) with one RBI this spring.

Rays planning to only play Kevin Kiermaier in center field

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/11/15) Rays manager Kevin Cash said Wednesday he plans to only play outfielder Kevin Kiermaier in center field this season, per the Tampa Bay Times. Desmond Jennings is expected to play in center field when Kiermaier isn't in the lineup.

“They had that outfield combination a couple years ago with B.J. (Upton) and (Carl) Crawford,” Cash said. “That was a pretty good tandem in the outfield. I think there’s probably some comparisons -- I don’t know if they’re fair -- that that’ll be quite the outfield to have cover a lot of ground out there.” 

Kiermaier started in center field and hit leadoff Wednesday against the Twins. However, it doesn't appear Cash wants to bat Kiermaier in the leadoff spot this season.

"Obviously he's fast," Cash said, per MLB.com. "He brings a lot. But I don't think in the leadoff role. ... He probably could develop into that and be a force. But I think right now we have some other guys we want to get into that spot. Not to say that he wouldn't [hit leadoff] on given days. But right now I don't think the plan is to pencil him into that leadoff spot."

Rays' Cash expecting Desmond Jennings to play a lot in LF

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/6/15) Rays manager Kevin Cash said outfielder Desmond Jennings will play a lot in left field this season, per MLB.com.

"That was part of the coversations we've had in the offseason, and we're very much on board with that," Cash said.

Jennings is a skilled center fielder, but Kevin Kiermaier is considered a strong defender with an above-average arm, which gives Cash options for his defensive alignment. Playing in left field could also be a way for the Rays to keep Jennings in the lineup and off of the trainer's table.

"Part of the thought we've had, we know there's more in there, [Jennings] knows there's more in there," Cash said. "He had some hiccups last year with health, staying on the field. So it's tough to really gauge a guy when you're battling some injury issues throughout the course of the year. But you look at certain parts of his seasons, and he's done some unbelievable things."
