The Rays designated catcher Nevin Ashley for assignment today, removing him from the 40-man roster. The move was necessary to open a spot for Luke Scott.

In all likelihood, we haven’t seen the end of Nevin, or his wife Ashley Ashley. Chances are he will clear waivers and accept an assignment to Durham with an invitation to spring training.

    Hopefully no one claims him; solid guy to keep around for depth.

  2. RedBull says:

    I'm actually surprised by this. While he struggled slightly in Durham, he's shown in his career that he does adjust well offensively if given time. And everything I've heard is that he's a very well-rounded defender. So, I hope we get him back, but I'm not going to get my hopes up.
