Brujan was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports. Brujan appeared in 10 games with the major-league club after he was called up July 7, but he hit just .077 with three runs, two RBI, a stolen base and eight strikeouts. He should reclaim an everyday role in the minors and will have a chance to right the ship before a potential return to the big-league roster at some point during the second half of the season.
Brujan was recalled by the Rays on Friday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports. Brujan has had a busy few days. He was called up Wednesday but was merely the extra man for a doubleheader against Cleveland, though he did appear in both contests, going 1-for-6 with a steal. He was sent back down Thursday but is back in the big leagues just one day later, with Mike Brosseau (oblique) hitting the injured list to clear a spot. Expect Brujan to feature frequently at several spots around the diamond, though he might have something short of a true everyday role.
Brujan was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Thursday. Brujan served as the 27th man in Wednesday's doubleheader against Cleveland and went 1-for-6 with a run, an RBI, a stolen base and two strikeouts in his first taste of major-league action. The 23-year-old is a strong candidate to return to the major-league roster at some point, especially while Manuel Margot (hamstring) is sidelined. However, Brujan will return to the Triple-A club for now.
Brujan is starting in right field and batting fifth in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against Cleveland, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Brujan started at the keystone in Game 1 and immediately made an impact, going 1-for-3 with an RBI single, run scored and stolen base. He'll showcase his defensive versatility as he moves to the outfield for the second half of the twin bill.
Brujan will make his major-league debut in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against Cleveland, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports. He will bat fifth and play second base. Brujan was recalled to serve as the 27th man for the twin bill and manager Kevin Cash will take waste no time getting the prized prospect into his first big-league game. While Brujan is currently slated to be with the club for just one day, the Rays could make another transaction later Wednesday to keep Brujan on the 26-man roster going forward.
