Brandon Guyer Makes Rays Opening Day Roster

The Tampa Bay Rays told outfielder Brandon Guyer that he had made the opening day roster and afterwards he told Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune,  “I’m really excited for the opportunity, I’ve been working my whole life to make an Opening Day roster and to be up here. Now the hard work starts. Now I have to keep grinding and do everything I can to help the team win.”

Infielders Jayson Nix and Wison Betemit and reliever Mark Lowe were told they were free to seek employment elsewhere but if they were unable to find a job Joe Maddon said they’d all be welcome to report to Durham. The only member of the trio for comment was Wilson Betemit who said that he would report to Durham if he were unable to find a major league deal elsewhere.

As of now the final two bullpen spots appear to be won by Josh Lueke and Brandon Gomes but Maddon said that “There’s something else in play.”
