|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(3/23/13) The Tampa Bay Rays released outfielder and designated hitter Jack Cust on Saturday. Cust's release comes on the heels of another round of cuts for the Rays. They optioned infielder Cole Figueroa, outfielder Rich Thompson, pitcher Kirby Yates, first baseman Leslie Anderson and reliever Dane De La Rosa to minor league camp.
|Anderson racking up spring RBI |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/25/13) Rays first baseman Leslie Anderson is off to a torrid start this spring. Anderson had three RBI Sunday against the Twins, including the go-ahead RBI in the 10th inning of a 10-7 win, and has five RBI through two spring games. He also has one homer, two runs and is batting .600 (3 for 5). "Good at-bats," Rays manager Joe Maddon said, per The Tampa Tribune. "Beyond that, I'm liking what he's doing on defense.
Watching him pregame it looks to me as though he's gotten a better feel for the position, also. He's looking really good. He's a different player than what I saw the last time I saw him. He looks stronger to me. He's definitely more confident. He's more comfortable here. When he showed up there was probably a lot of discomfort culturally for him. But right now he looks like he's got a pretty good handle on things. He looks good."
Rays designate Ruggiano, Anderson for assignment
The Tampa Bay Rays have designated outfielder Justin Ruggiano and first baseman-outfielder Leslie Anderson for assignment, creating openings on the 40-man roster for free-agent acquisitions Johnny Damon and Manny Ramirez.
