Rays Designate Leslie Anderson For Assignment

23

"The Rays designated Leslie Anderson for assignment to create roster space for Manny Ramirez and Johnny Damon, according to Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times (on Twitter). The Rays designated outfielder Justin Ruggiano for assignment in a related move earlier today. The Rays officially signed Anderson, a Cuban defector, to a four-year, $1.725MM contract in April. At the time, Rays director of international operations Carlos Alfonso said the 28-year-old was appealing "because of his athleticism, and the fact that he can play all three outfield positions, as well as first base." Anderson reached Triple-A last year, hitting .302/.359/.442 with 31 extra base hits across three levels. The left-handed hitter split his time between first base and left field." Anyone else think we should take a look at this? He can play 3 OF positions and 1B. He could be a great backup player to have in AAA in case there is an injury in the bigs.
