Blalock Forces Rays Hand


Marc Topkin reports tonight that Hank Blalock will be exercising his out clause in his contract within the next week. The Rays would then have 3 options: call up Blalock (and demote Sean Rodriguez or release Pat Burrell), trade Blalock, or release Blalock. Blalock has hit .375 in Durham with 23 RBI so it is highly doubtful the club would release him. My personal preference is he comes up, Burrell is jettisoned, and Blalock gets to DH against all RHP.
