Baldelli: It's all good
Despite playing only five innings instead of the scheduled seven in rightfield on Friday in his final rehab game for Double-A Montgomery, OF Rocco Badelli said he felt fine and was eager for the next step.
"Everything was cool,'' he told A. Stacy Long of the Montgomery Advertiser. "It was perfect. I came out feeling good and I'm happy.''
Baldelli will fly back to Tampa on Saturday and be re-evaluated by the Rays. It is possible he could be activated off the DL for his first major-league game since May 2007. He has been sidelined since spring training due to a rare muscle fatigue condition.
