New kid in town ....
By the time the Devil Rays get to Baltimore on Friday, they will have a couple of new players.
1B/DH Kevin Witt, who has had a spectacular season at Triple-A Durham, hitting a minor-league leading 36 homers and logging an International League high 99 RBIs, was called up after the Rays traded OF/3B Russell Branyan to San Diego. The Rays received minor-league pitcher Evan Meek and will get a player to be named later or cash.
The Rays have also called up RHP Jason Hammel, who will start on Friday against the Orioles.
