In light of their injury woes, I guess the questions are -It is a very weird move, particularly as Williams has been a guy the Rays have been very slow and deliberate in developing. Him being promoted this aggressively in light of the Franco situation is definitely a major eyebrow raiser and I can't help but think it has to be related.
1) do they see themselves going deep in the post-season if Franco is lost for the year? (or in the post-season at all?)
2) have they no one else to cover SS, so that promoting Williams is a possible fix?
3) is Williams even a possible fix?
