To make room on the 40-man roster for Wilson Ramos, the Rays designated Justin O’Conner for assignment. O’Conner was said to be a top defensive catching prospect, but his bat lagged behind. And now, according to Topkin, injuries seem to be playing a role in the Rays fallen expectations for him.

On the injury front, some good news from Ramos.

The goal is for him to catch, but even if he can’t immediately, this would be a good sign.
