Player Notes
Rays manager Kevin Cash said Sunday that he plans to play the recently promoted Joey Butler "a lot."

Advice: Butler will play regularly versus lefties while Desmond Jennings (knee) is out but is also expected to see some starts against righties, as well. He's in the designated hitter spot and hitting fifth on Sunday. The 29-year-old is worth a flier in AL-only leagues.

Rays purchased the contract of OF Joey Butler from Triple-A Durham.

Advice: He earned the promotion by hitting .317/.404/.488 with two homers and 15 RBI over 22 games for Durham. Butler, 29, could see some starts while Desmond Jennings (knee) is on the shelf.

Joey Butler has gotten off to a smoking hot start for Triple-A Durham, hitting .377 with 12 RBI in his first 17 games.

Advice: At 29, we wouldn't really consider Butler a prospect, but that doesn't make his performance any less noteworthy. A Quad-A player for most of his career, Butler was among the Rays' last cuts in spring training. Butler has 14 games of big league experience on his resume and will probably get another chance to contribute at that level later this year.
