The Rays are looking to pursue Brett Lawrie, so that’s a shocker. Last week, the former Brewers top prospect was released from the White Sox. The 27-year old slashed a middle of the road .248/.310/.413 in his single year playing for Chicago. The Rays are stacked with infielders, so Lawrie’s place on the team would likely be a right handed bat coming off of the bench or an occasional DH substitution.
