More help for the Rays?

Wade Davis, RHP, Rays (Triple-A Durham)
Monday's stats: 6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 7 K
With David Price up and stabilizing the Rays' rotation, Davis might not be far behind. A pure power arm with an above-average fastball and curve, Davis got off to a slow start at Triple-A but really has come on lately, striking out 20 over 12 innings in his past two starts. He has potential as both a starter and a reliever, as well as the potential to affect the Rays in either role during the second half of the season.

He's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack

Logan Morrison, 1B, Marlins (High-A Jupiter)
Monday's stats: 1-for-3, BB, K
One of the more promising hitters in the minors, Morrison played just two games at Double-A before hitting the shelf with a fractured right wrist. After leading the Florida State League with a .332 batting average last season, Morrison really began to rocket up prospect lists with a monster showing in the Arizona Fall League, but now he'll need to come back from what has so far been a lost season. Be patient, Fish fans -- power often takes a long time to return after wrist injuries.
