Brosseau went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in a 7-2 victory against the Marlins on Sunday.
Before Sunday, Brosseau hadn't gone deep since July 14, but he still already has five homers in 80 at-bats. The rookie's played 25 games, so it's certainly a small sample, but his .313 average, .575 slugging percentage, 13 RBI and 13 runs in 25 games stand out as well. He should only receive more playing time down the stretch.
Brosseau is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Brosseau started four of the past five games at second base, a byproduct of the Rays encountering a surge in matchups versus left-handed pitching. Despite opening his big-league career with an .873 OPS over his first 74 plate appearances, Brosseau still appears to be stuck in the short side of a platoon with Joey Wendle, who will man the keystone in the series finale.
Brosseau will start at second base and bat sixth Wednesday against the Red Sox, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Brosseau has entered the lineup for all three games of the series, as Boston has deployed lefty starting pitchers in each of those contests. Despite the uptick in opportunities, Brosseau still looks to be stuck in a short-side platoon role.
Brosseau is out of the lineup for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Yankees, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Brosseau will head to the bench for the first time in five games after going 6-for-20 with three home runs and five RBI during that stretch. The 25-year-old isn't likely to capture an everyday role anytime soon with Ji-Man Choi having recently been reinstated from the injured list and Brandon Lowe (lower leg) and Matt Duffy (hamstring) also nearing returns, but Brosseau's right-handedness may help his case for sticking around as a utility man when the Rays are at full strength. The lefty-hitting Joey Wendle is rendered somewhat redundant as a bench piece with five other left-handed batters (Choi, Nate Lowe, Brandon Lowe, Austin Meadows and Kevin Kiermaier) seemingly all ahead of him in the pecking order.
Brosseau went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's victory over the Orioles.
Brosseau belted a two-run blast over the fence in right field during the sixth inning, extending his team's lead to four. The 25-year-old has been red hot since being recalled July 3, and he's put together a .395/.425/.816 slash line with four homers and 10 RBI over his first 12 matchups.
Brosseau went 3-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.
Brosseau went without a hit in the matinee but found his home-run stroke in the nightcap to help power the Rays' offense. The 25-year-old is 13-for-34 with four doubles and three home runs in his first 11 big-league contests.
Brosseau went 3-for-5 with two doubles and a run in an extra-innings loss to the Yankees on Friday.
The rookie continued his mastery of big-league arms in the loss, lacing his fourth and fifth extra-base hits over a modest season sample of 19 plate appearances. Brosseau is now 8-for-19 overall over his first six games in the majors, an unsustainable clip that nevertheless provides a glimpse of the 25-year-old's prowess with the bat.
Brosseau went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI on Wednesday against the Orioles.
Brosseau took John Means deep in the fourth inning for his first career home run. He was recalled prior to Wednesday's contest after Ji-Man Choi (ankle) was placed on the injured list, and he'll provide depth around the diamond for the team after appearing at every infield position as well as left field with Triple-A Durham this season. Through 68 games at the highest level of the minors, Brosseau managed a .317/.408/.590 line.
Brosseau was recalled from Triple-A Durham as expected Wednesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Brosseau could spend some time filling in for Ji-Man Choi at first base after the latter was placed on the 10-day injured list with a sprained left ankle. Brosseau has started at every spot in the infield for Durham this season and has also made four starts in left field. The 25-year-old has recorded a strong .317/.408/.590 slash line with 15 homers in 68 games with the Bulls.
Brosseau will be recalled from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Brosseau was sent to Triple-A on Friday but will make a quick return to the majors. The 25-year-old played in three games during his first taste of the big leagues and went 3-for-8 with two doubles, two runs scored and three RBI.
Brosseau was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Friday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Brosseau had his contract selected by the Rays last weekend and went 3-for-8 with two doubles and three RBI in his first taste of the majors. The 25-year-old returns to Durham, where he has a .313/.406/.579 slash line with 14 homers in 66 games.
Brosseau entered Tuesday's loss to the Twins as a defensive replacement in the bottom of the sixth inning and went 1-for-2 with a two-run double and a run.
Brosseau came through in his first at-bat of the game in the seventh inning with his timely two-bagger, which plated both Joey Wendle and Travis d'Arnaud. The rookie's two RBI were the first of his big-league career, and he's now 2-for-6 overall in the two games he's suited up for since his promotion from Triple-A Durham on Saturday.
The Rays officially selected Brosseau's contract from Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
As anticipated, the 25-year-old will get his first taste of the big leagues with the Rays losing another infielder (Daniel Robertson) to the 10-day injured list. Like Robertson, Brosseau possesses the ability to play all over the diamond, which could allow the utility man to see regular action against left-handed pitching while he's up with the big club. Over 283 plate appearances with Durham this season, Brosseau has slashed .313/.406/.579 with 35 extra-base hits.
The Rays plan to call up Brosseau from Triple-A Durham ahead of Saturday's game against the Athletics, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Undrafted out of Oakland in 2016, Brosseau earned his way to the majors after flashing excellent contact skills and plate discipline at nearly every stop of the minors while displaying the ability to play all over the infield. Thanks in part to the new ball at the Triple-A level, Brosseau has shown some growth as a power hitter with Durham this season, slashing .313/.406/.579 with 14 home runs and 20 doubles across 283 plate appearances. He'll give the Rays another utility option with Daniel Robertson (knee) headed to the 10-day injured list.
