Maybe he gives them a little offensive shot in the arm which the Rays do need right about now. Add this guy in there with Longoria and Wil Myers and you have some young, but talented RH bats. He'll have to serve his time in AAA until he loses FA time. I wouldn't wait too long if I were Rays management. Not in that division.

PITCHER OF THE DAY: Bryan Mitchell, rhp — Double-A Trenton (Yankees)
When Mitchell finds command, it's sure to be a long night for the opposition. He did just that last night in Akron, and the result was one of the best individual games of the season. Mitchell, a 22-year-old righthander with a mid-90s heater and a hammer hook, fanned 12 hitters in six shutout innings.
HITTER OF THE DAY: Mikie Mahtook, lf — Triple-A Durham (Rays)'via Blog this'
The former LSU Tiger and 2011 first-rounder was a perfect 5-for-5 with a triple, two runs scored and an RBI in yet another Bulls win. He lacks a carrying tool and profiles more as a second-division regular, but he's hitting .356/.396/.444 so far, and that's plenty good.
