Joel Peralta has dropped his appeal and will begin serving his 8-game suspension immediately. The Rays have also officially added Brooks Conrad to the roster, Jeff Keppinger has been activated from the DL, and Brandon Gomes has been recalled from Durham.

To make room on the roster Matt Joyce has been placed on the DL, Rich Thompson has been sent back to triple-A, and Drew Sutton has been designated for assignment and placed on waivers.

Got that? Good. There will be a quiz during the fourth inning tonight.



  1. Rob says:

    So, Brooks Conrad is taking Sutton's place? Granted, Brooks Conrad is a way better baseball name then Drew Sutton, but Conrad is 3-40 (although two of those hits are HRs). At least Sutton was batting .270. I guess it doesn't matter much one way or the other. Wonder if he'll bat cleanup tonight?

  2. Don says:

    Sutton was one of the better hitting infielders, I knew after he got a couple of hits to beat the Yankees and didn't play for a week, he was in the Maddon doghouse,, probably did go along with Maddons BS, Never seen conrad hit but Sutton can out hit Rodquiz, Rymes.....
