Player Notes
Rays optioned 1B Marc Krauss to Triple-A Durham.

Advice: Krauss was 1-for-10 with seven strikeouts in four games with the Rays since being acquired from the Angels on June 25. He was optioned to make room for Matt Moore on the active roster.

Marc Krauss struck out in both of his at-bats Wednesday before being removed for a pinch-hitter.

Advice: Incredibly, it's the second time in four games for the Rays that Krauss, a left-handed hitter, has been replaced by a right-handed pinch-hitter against a right-handed pitcher. Which makes one wonder why the Rays are playing him at first base or why they bothered acquiring him in the first place. He's 1-for-10 so far for the team.

Marc Krauss had an RBI double in Friday's loss to the Red Sox.

Advice: Krauss was playing his first game with the Rays after being acquired from the Angels on Thursday. The 27-year-old should see part-time duty at first base until James Loney (finger) is ready to return from the disabled list. There's some pop in his bat, but it's hard to recommend him outside of deeper AL-only formats. He came into Friday's action with a .194/.268/.335 batting line in the majors.

Rays acquired 1B Marc Krauss from the Angels for Kyle Winkler.

Advice: The 27-year-old slugger struggled in his brief time with the Angels, but was hitting .289/.415/.453 with four homers and 29 RBI in 47 games at Triple-A Salt Lake. He should handle first base regularly until James Loney (finger) returns, making him worth an add in AL-only formats.
