Devil Rays update

A good finish to 2005 and the continued growth of their young talent has created some optimism around the Devil Rays, who finished the spring with a 13-16 record. Rookie manager Joe Maddon, a longtime Angels coach, puts out a lineup filled with young talent, including 24-year-old left fielder Carl Crawford (.301 with 15 homers, 81 RBIs and 46 steals in 2005); 24-year-old second baseman Jorge Cantu (28 homers, 117 RBIs); and 29-year-old third baseman Aubrey Huff (22 homers, 92 RBIs). Outfielder Rocco Baldelli, 24, who missed all of last season with knee and elbow injuries, will start this season on the disabled list.
