Matsui signs with Rays, to begin workouts
 
Quote:

The Rays signed outfielder/designated hitter Hideki Matsui to a Minor League contract on Monday. The left-handed hitter will report to extended Spring Training in Charlotte County, Fla., on Wednesday.

Matsui, who turns 38 in June, has played nine seasons in the Major Leagues with the New York Yankees (2003-09), Los Angeles Angels (2010) and Oakland Athletics (2011) following a 10-year career with the Yomiuri Giants of Japan's Central League. He owns a career .285 batting average with 173 home runs, 753 RBIs and 248 doubles in 1,202 games after hitting .304 with 332 home runs, 889 RBIs and 245 doubles in 1,268 games in Japan.

"Over the past two decades, Hideki has been one of the most consistently productive hitters in the world," said Rays executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman. "We are happy to add his ability, approach and professionalism to our organization."

He is going to have to do much better than what his average is showing now or he will stay in the minors.

Major Seahawk 07-09-2012 08:04 PM

Maybe the Rays standards are too high, look at the Mariners, they have a bunch of guys that shoudl be in the minors. haha I just took a shot at my own team, I need to slap myself lol

Simply Blonde 07-09-2012 08:08 PM
