The Tampa Bay Rays made a handful of roster moves on Sunday. SS Tim Beckham was reassigned to minor league camp. RHP Matt Bush, RHP Dane De La Rosa, OF Brandon Guyer and C Stephen Vogt were optioned to Triple-A Durham. The moves come as the Rays trim their roster ahead of the regular season.
Of all the names on the list, Guyer, a right-handed hitter, could be the first to get his cup of coffee. Part of the Matt Garza deal with the Chicago Cubs, he hit 14 home runs and had a .905 OPS in 107 games at Triple-A Durham last season.
Beckham was the first-overall pick in 2008. Just 21, he is considered one of the Rays' top young prospects, even after hitting just .271/.328/.408 between Double-A and Triple-A in 2011.
Bush and De La Rosa figure as bullpen depth this point.
