Chris Colabello went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run, two RBI, a run scored and a walk against the Yankees on Sunday.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. We've seen this from Colabello before back in April. While it might be nice to grab him for the short run, expecting him to sustain this current level of production is just foolish. If you believe otherwise, just take a look at his numbers in May which ended up getting him demoted.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
