Dukes Gone (Or Not)

New, comments

From Marc Lancaster:


It appears the Rays finally have given up on Elijah Dukes. The troubled outfielder is off the roster, though it is not yet clear if he has been designated for assignment or placed on the restricted list.

Dustan Mohr has been brought up from Durham to take Dukes' place.

Dukes' locker in the clubhouse has been cleaned out. We have been told the clubhouse will close at 4:00 for a team meeting.

Apparently Dukes had asked to be traded although we're not sure if that's the case just yet...

Marc Topkin:

The Rays apparently are going to assign Dukes to a list -- which list is still unknown -- that will drop him from the roster but keep him within the organization.
Temporary Inactive List for Dukes. Rocco moved to 60 day DL to make room.
