You’ll al­ways re­mem­ber your first one

Tampa Bay Times - - Raysreport -

Tampa na­tive/Her­nando High prod­uct Chris­tian Ar­royo was ex­cited to make his first start Thurs­day (play­ing third, hit­ting sev­enth) for the Rays team he grew up watch­ing. “It’ll be in­ter­est­ing just to wear the jersey,’’ he said. “It’s like a child­hood dream come true.’’ Ar­royo was called up from Triple A when Gomez went on the dis­abled list Wed­nes­day. Ar­royo seems likely to get play­ing time as the Rays face a heavy dose of lefty starters over the next week, more so if Hechavar­ria ends up on the DL. With Duffy ex­pected back in the lineup Satur­day, Ar­royo, ac­quired from the Gi­ants in the Evan Lon­go­ria trade in De­cem­ber, could be used at short­stop or sec­ond base, with the pos­si­bil­ity that Robert­son could get a start in the out­field.
