Rays Interested In Damon

From Joel Sherman:
A darkhorse has emerged in pursuit of Johnny Damon, and it is an AL East rival of the Yankees.

The Tampa Bay Rays have been in regular contact with Scott Boras about adding Damon to be their primary DH, The Post has learned.


Friends of Damon say interest in the lefty hitter has intensified as clubs have grown to believe that the Yankees will not swoop in at the last minute to re-sign him. The A’s are definitely involved with Damon, and there have been reports the Reds and Tigers are interested.
Sherman also says that the Rays would use Damon as a DH against righties and play him in left to give Carl Crawford a day off here and there.
