    Single-A Vero Beach's Matt Walker was suspended 50 games for violating the league's policy on amphetamines.
    Walker is the third Rays pitcher to draw a 50-game ban since the beginning of last year. The 21-year-old right-hander was 4-7 with a 4.86 ERA in nine starts and 13 relief appearances in the FSL this season. Considering that he has very good stuff yet he's always been awfully wild, maybe getting off the pills will do him some good.

    According to Jon Heyman, the Rays refused to include Reid Brignac in a Jason Bay trade and presumably wouldn't give him up for Adam Dunn.
    So,now their top four prospects are off limits? If that's the case, the Rays probably won't substantially upgrade their team before the deadline. It's possible that they could land Dunn with other players -- RHP Jeff Niemann, OF Desmond Jennings and RHP Eduardo Morlan are fine prospects as well -- but it won't be easy. The Reds have to figure they can get draft picks for Dunn, while they might not have for Ken Griffey Jr.

    The Rays believe Reid Brignac may have suffered a broken wrist when he was hit by a pitch in Triple-A Durham's game last night.
    If a fracture is discovered, then Brignac could miss out on a September callup. He wasn't likely to have much of a role then anyway.

    Making his Triple-A debut Wednesday, David Price suffered his first loss as a pro.
    Price allowed three runs on seven hits while lasting just four innings. "They were hitting everything tonight," Price said. "This is Triple A, they were hitting good pitches and bad pitches. The hitters are just better, period. I feel good that I didn't walk anybody. I threw strikes, just not enough strikes. At least I made them put the ball in play. You can't have your best stuff every night." If Price can put together a few good starts, he could be an option for the Rays down the stretch.

    He's a good backup. Pitcher's seem to throw well when he's behind the plate. I know Garza has had two great starts when Riggo was behind the plate.

    Tim Beckham in Hudson Valley
    Hooray for behind 2 days behind on this, but #1 overall pick Tim Beckham's in Hudson Valley now and will probably debut tonight. The move makes sense because the New York-Penn league runs about two weeks longer than the Appalachian League, and the Rays want to get him as much development time as possible. I am a bit surprised that they didn't also promote guys like Ty Morrison and Matt Moore, but I guess there's only so much playing time available in HV. Also, to me, this pretty much guarantees the Rays will send him to their low-A affiliate to start 2009, wherever that is(possibly Bowling Green).

    Anyway, another #1 overall pick, David Price, will also be in action tonight in Durham.

    Instructional League rosters from Lancaster
    Wow, quite a list. Rotation of Cobb, Barnese, Moore, and Cruz. Plus Newmann (who was added to Columbus' roster on 8/14, 7-day DL), Wilsino (see his stats in the DSL recap below) and Lobstein. Beckham, Cedeno and Otero together. Our rehab guys look like BA's top 10 for most teams. Interesting that they got visas together for Cedeno and Wilsino. That had to be in the works for a while. (Where's Bencomo? Liriano? Yendis?) Schedule is also in the link if you're in the area.

    Some new details on Port Charlotte (A+)
    It isn't just Ripken Baseball buying Vero Beach, it's a joint venture with the Rays. From the release:

    "The Tampa Bay Rays and Ripken Baseball today announced that together they have purchased the team that plays in Vero Beach, FL. The team will be moved to Charlotte County and will play in Port Charlotte, FL starting in 2009."


    The GM:

    "Ripken Baseball has hired Joe Hart to serve as the team's General Manager. Hart was formerly the GM at the Nashville Sounds, the AAA affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers in the Pacific Coast League."


    Pretty affordable if you live in the area:

    "Full season seat (70 games) packages start at $285 and the team is taking deposits for seating now."
