Lugo (again) not playing for Rays ...



Shortstop Julio Lugo was out of the Devil Rays lineup for a second straight game Monday, though this time with a reason why - a bruise on the tip of his right middle finger. Lugo, the subject of significant trade rumors, was in the original lineup but scratched after testing the finger during batting practice. He has not played since leaving Saturday's game after hitting two home runs in the fifth inning. The Blue Jays are believed to be the team most interested in Lugo, and have young pitching to offer back to the Rays.
