SS Hak-Ju Lee and OF Brad Coon were in the Rays clubhouse this morning, leaving non-roster 1B Juan Miranda as the only player who has yet to check in in advance of Sunday's first full-squad workout.
Lee, the promising prospect, said he was excited about the opportunity to participate in big-league camp. And while he acknowledged he needs more experience in the minors, he also said he is eager to get to the big leagues. "I'm ready now,'' he said.
Today looks to be something of a light day, with no bullpen sessions scheduled. Many of the position players who have been here all week are taking off today as their last free day.
