Player Notes
Tigers claimed 1B Marc Krauss off waivers from the Rays.

Advice: Krauss was DFA'ed on July 4 after being optioned to Triple-A earlier in the week. He struck out seven times in 10 at-bats in (very) limited duty for the Rays. Kraus is just a .192 hitter for his career at the big league level over the last three seasons.

Rays designated 1B Marc Krauss for assignment.

Advice: The first baseman was optioned to Triple-A earlier in the week after going just 1-for-10 with seven strikeouts in his limited time with the Rays. There's a chance that he could attract some interest on waivers.

Sat, Jul 4 Rotoworld
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.

Wed, Jul 1 Rotoworld
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Advice: Incredibly, it's the second time in four games for the Rays that Krauss, a left-handed hitter, has been replaced by a right-handed pinch-hitter against a right-handed pitcher.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.

Wed, Jul 1 Rotoworld
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.
