Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun is reporting that the Rays have reached an agreement with free agent Luke Scott on a 1-year deal with a 2013 option.
Scott can play both corner outfield positions and first base. However, it would seem that he is more like to by the most-days DH. Scott hit .220 with 9 home runs and a .307 wOBA in 64 games last year with the Orioles. His season was cut short by a shoulder injury that required surgery.
If Scott is the DH, Johnny Damon’s tenure with the Rays is now likely to be over.
Scott became a free agent last month after he was non-tendered by Baltimore.
