Hitmaker of the day
Among the minor-leaguers who joined the roster Thursday, only OF Emeel Salem, right, also is listed on iTunes. Salem, 27, has a four-song EP of his music ($3.96), a fusion of blues and pop, and hopes to hit it big in music and baseball: "I don't want to be the guy who does both. I'd like to be somebody able to do two different, separate things."
TV spot of the day
3B Evan Longoria is among several major-leaguers featured in a Major League Baseball opening day TV spot airing on ESPN and MLB Network. He says he will "make his glove golden." See the video at tampabay.com/blogs/rays.
