Rays activate OF Brandon Allen from DL, then designate for assignment
The Tampa Bay Rays have activated OF/1B Brandon Allen from the disabled list, and then designated him for assignment.
The Rays have 10 days to trade or release Allen, who has been on the DL since May 10 with a right quad strain.
Allen, 26, claimed off waivers from the A's April 19, had a few big moments with Tampa Bay, including a walk-off homer against the Angels April 26. He hit .154 in seven games with Tampa Bay.
