Rays | Manager has good words for departed players

Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon feels recently traded 2B Elliot Johnson, now with the Kansas City Royals, and SS Reid Brignac, now with the Colorado Rockies, are major league players. "Reid, of course, the biggest thing there is to get the offensive side of the game working some more," Maddon said. "Elliot, I think is already there. As a utility player on a good team, he is very valuable - switch-hitter with some pop, runs really well, can steal a bag, (plays) multiple positions. He plays the game hard. I'm a big fan."
