Profiles on Potential Durham Bulls

Two of the non-roster invitees are having a good time at spring training and they are getting some deserved attention on the web: outfielder Jeff Salazar and infielder (and sometime outfielder) Will Rhymes.

Thirty year old Salazar gets some attention over on DRaysBay. He is likely not a stranger to the DBAP since he's had playing time with Indianapolis, Norfolk, and Toledo over the last couple of years.

Will Rhymes (profiled here) has even more time in the International League, exclusively with the Mud Hens. He has surely spent some time at the DBAP as well. He also looks as if he would be an asset to the Bulls.

However, the injury list down at the Rays training camp grows longer each day (Brignac, Upton, Fuld, Jennings, Chirinos) so both players have a chance to stay past opening day. However, someone will have to be dumped from the 40-man to make room.

Rays Prospects is reporting that pitchers Cesar Ramos and Josh Lueke have been optioned to the Bulls, which means that the pitching roster is filling out very nicely.
