Brosseau was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday. Brosseau's latest stint on the big-league roster lasted just two days. He made the most of it, going 2-for-7 with a homer and a double, but he'll return to the minors for now as the Rays add another reliever (Shawn Armstrong) to the bullpen.
Brosseau went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 9-2 win over the Orioles. Called back up to the majors Sunday, Brosseau has started two straight games and gone 2-for-7 with two extra-base hits after popping a double in his return. His playing time has come in part because Yandy Diaz is nursing a thumb injury, but Brosseau isn't likely to remain a lineup regular for long given his .187/.266/.347 slash line with five homers in 57 games this season for the Rays.
Brosseau was recalled from Triple-A Durham and is starting at second base Sunday at Minnesota, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Brosseau has been at Triple-A the past few weeks but will rejoin the Rays with Yandy Diaz limited by a sprained thumb. Brosseau has a .182/.265/.322 slash line in 162 big-league plate appearances this season and should fill a utility role during his time in the majors.
Brosseau (oblique) was activated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports. The 27-year-old reported to Durham on Tuesday to begin a rehab assignment, but he'll simply join the Bulls on a semi-permanent basis instead. Brosseau could rejoin the Rays later in the season if the team needs a utility player.
Brosseau (oblique) joined the Rays' rookie-level Florida Complex League on Tuesday for a rehab assignment. Brosseau has been on the shelf for just over a week with what appears to be a minor right oblique strain. He's not expected to be in store for a prolonged rehab period, but Brosseau may not have a spot on the MLB roster available for him once he's reinstated from the injured list. The recent promotions of switch-hitting infield prospects Wander Franco and Vidal Brujan to the big leagues has rendered the righty-hitting Brosseau redundant as a short-side platoon option for Tampa Bay. Per Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network, manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday that Brosseau will move his rehab to Triple-A Durham after playing just one game with the rookie club.
