Rays Activate Luke Scott, Designate Duncan

The Tampa Bay Rays have activated designated hitter Luke Scott from the 15-day disabled list. To make room on the roster the Rays have designated Shelley Duncan for assignment.

  Scott spent the 2012 season battling injury problems as he hit a sub-par  .229 with 14 home runs while playing in only 96 games.  After the season the Rays declined his 2013 $6MM option making him a free agent but re-signed him in late January to a  1-year $2.75MM.  He hit .324 (11 for 34) with 3 HR this spring and made 5 rehab starts with the High A Charlotte Stone Crabs logging 19 plate appearances and hitting .222 (4 for 18).


Shelley Duncan had replaced Scott on the roster and hit .182 (10 for 55) with 3 home runs in 20 games.




I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
