Rays' Mike Brosseau: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays optioned Brosseau to Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

With a .781 OPS in 142 plate appearances during his first taste of the big leagues in 2019, Brosseau certainly didn't look out of place on an MLB roster, but he was simply caught up in a numbers game in the infield. The demotions of Brosseau and Nate Lowe to the minors likely leaves room for one of Joey Wendle or Daniel Robertson to make the Opening Day roster as a utility man.

Rays' Mike Brosseau: Raking at plate early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brosseau is 3-for-6 with a home run, three RBI, two walks and three runs across eight plate appearances over four Grapefruit League games.

The 25-year-old slashed a solid .273/.319/.462 with 13 extra-base hits (seven doubles, six home runs) and 16 RBI across 142 plate appearances in what was his first taste of big-league action last season. Despite his serviceable numbers, Brosseau was ultimately left off the ALDS roster, and he faces a potentially formidable challenge in securing an Opening Day roster spot with the likes of Joey Wendle and Daniel Robertson also vying for a utility infield role.

Rays' Mike Brosseau: Doesn't make ALDS team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brosseau is not on the Rays' ALDS roster.

Brosseau started in the wild-card round with lefty Sean Manaea on the mound. He'll lose out against the Astros and their righty-heavy rotation. Fellow right-handed bat Daniel Robertson also failed to make the cut, with lefty Eric Sogard (foot) making the roster instead.

Rays' Mike Brosseau: Starting AL Wild Card Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brosseau will start Wednesday's AL Wild Card Game against the Athletics, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Brosseau starts at second base and bats ninth as the Rays load up on righties against lefty starter Sean Manaea. Tampa Bay will carry a six-man bench, so Brosseau is at risk of being lifted for a lefty later in the game.

Rays' Mike Brosseau: Makes wild-card roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brosseau is on the Rays' wild-card roster.

Brosseau posted a solid .273/.319/.462 slash line in 51 games this season, but the Rays have a number of somewhat interchangeable infielders, so there was no guarantee that he'd make the squad. The Rays will carry several right-handed hitters against lefty Sean Manaea, with Brosseau, Yandy Diaz and Daniel Robertson all making the cut.

Rays' Mike Brosseau: Returning to Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brosseau will be recalled by the Rays on Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 25-year-old utility man has looked good through his first 43 career games, hitting .282/.321/.484 while filling in at six different positions. The expanded September rosters could mean that a regular role is hard to come by, but Brosseau should still find himself in the lineup occasionally down the stretch.

Rays' Mike Brosseau: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brosseau was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Brosseau has been a useful utility man this season, hitting .282/.321/.484 in 43 games, featuring mainly against lefties. The Rays will add Jose De Leon as an extra bullpen arm in a corresponding move, though Brosseau should return in early September after rosters expand.

Rays' Mike Brosseau: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brosseau is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Brosseau entered the lineup at second base for the past two games with the Rays facing left-handed starting pitchers, but he'll head to the bench with righty Dylan Bundy on the bump for Baltimore in the series finale. The rookie, who slugged his second home run of August on Saturday and is batting .277 on the month, should continue to serve in a short-side platoon role for the Rays for the foreseeable future.

Rays' Mike Brosseau: Posts 3-for-4 day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Mike Brosseau: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Mike Brosseau: Third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Mike Brosseau: Starting streak ends
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Mike Brosseau: Launches fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Mike Brosseau: Hits two home runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Michael Brosseau: Continues tear in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Michael Brosseau: Records first career home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Michael Brosseau: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Michael Brosseau: Set to rejoin Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Michael Brosseau: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Michael Brosseau: First pair of major-league RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
