According to Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune the Rays have officially called up outfielder Brandon Guyer from Triple-A Durham.

The 26-year-old outfielder, acquired in the trade of Matt Garza last winter, was hitting .294/.365/.459 with three home runs in 97 plate appearances for the Bulls. With Desmond Jennings knee an issue at the moment the Rays could use the extra outfield help. As Mooney noted, no roster move has been made to clear a spot.

The Rays could go in a few directions. They could send down Brandon Allen or Elliott Johnson. or place Jennings on the disabled list. Another, be it less likely, scenario is that a trade has been made that we're not yet privy to. We'll post more information as it becomes available.

Guyer, best remembered for hitting a home run in his first career at bat, is able to play all three outfield positions and spent a short time last season with the major league club, posting a.580 in 43 plate appearances.

Update: Well, it wasn't a move anyone expected. The Rays placed Jeff Keppinger on the restricted list due to a personal matter, according to Mooney. A time period for the absence wasn't given at this time, though the team expects it to be short.
