As expected, the Rays have announced that Hideki Matsui has been promoted from triple-A and will be in uniform for tonight’s game.
To make room, Stephen Vogt was optioned back to Durham. Also, Brandon Guyer was transferred to the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster. That gives the Rays five players on the 60-day DL and it is still May. Amazing.
Also, Matsui will wear no. 35.
