Rays | Roberto Hernandez to compete for rotation spot

Tampa Bay Rays SP Roberto Hernandez will compete for a spot in the team's starting rotation in spring training, but he could wind up pitching out of the bullpen at some point during the season. "We're not sure exactly what role we're going to use him in, but obviously he has a lot more experience starting than being used out of the bullpen, so we feel like there is a lot of upside with him, and with his groundball tendencies he'll fit in extremely well with our infield defense and what we're envisioning it to be in 2013," executive vice president of baseball Andrew Friedman said.
