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.http://www.tboblogs.com/index.php/s...ff-rays-roster/
Good riddance. Kid was clearly a 1st class a-hole. Strong statement by the Rays management.
edit to add rotoworld's take, which is in line with what Amazinz said below, might not be outright cut/release, but i'm personally hoping it is and he wasn't optioned or traded. let's see this clown live without that fat baseball paycheck.rotoworld: Elijah Dukes has been dropped from Tampa Bay's roster, according to the St. Petersburg Times.
No word yet on whether he's been optioned to Triple-A, designated for assignment or traded, but Dustan Mohr is coming up to replace him.
