Another bat? Blalock a possibility



The Rays like the team they have assembled, but they are always looking for ways to improve. And that could include adding another veteran left-handed bat.

The Rays have interest in longtime Texas INF Hank Blalock on a minor-league deal. The Marlins do, too, and there are several reports that Blalock is set to choose between the two Florida teams.

Blalock, 29, played eight seasons with the Rangers, hitting .259 with 152 HRs and 535 RBIs. He hit .234 with 25 homers last season but had only a .277 on-base percentage, and has been injury prone.
