KC & The Sunshine Band has been added to the acts performing at Tropicana Field this summer as part of the Rays 2013 Summer Concert Series. The band is scheduled to perform at the conclusion of the Rays-Astros game on Saturday, July 13 at 4:10 p.m.
The Tampa Bay Rays are expected to select outfielder Wil Myers from Durham (AAA) Tuesday. He will join the team in Boston for the three-game series beginning Tuesday against the Red Sox. He will wear No. 9. To make room for him on the roster, the Rays optioned infielder Ryan Roberts to Durham. The Rays do not need to make a corresponding 40-man roster move because they had 39 players coming into today.
The Tampa Bay Rays selected catcher Nick Ciuffo (SHOO-fo) from Lexington (S.C.) High School with the No. 21 overall pick and right-handed pitcher Ryne Stanek (STAN-eck) from the University of Arkansas with the No. 29 overall pick in the first round of the 2013 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.
