PROMOTION: Jake Bauers Promoted To MLB
Tampa Bay Rays 1B/OF prospect Jake Bauers has been promoted to the MLB Thursday. Bauers, 22, has had another steady performance for the AAA Durham Bulls this season, posting a .279/.357/.426 slash line with a .356 wOBA and 126 wRC+. His minor league career has revealed that he’s an above-average hitter with a little bit of pop and the ability to steal some bags. He fits well in the Tampa Bay system as he can do a little bit of everything and also provides the team with positional flexibility. We doubt he will light the league on fire when he gets called up, but he could be a very reliable piece for the Rays and your fantasy squad both now and in the future.
