Rays Take Eduardo Morlan Back

According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Rays reclaimed pitcher Eduardo Morlan today.  Morlan had been a Rule 5 pick by the Brewers.  To keep a Rule 5 pick you have to keep him on the Major League roster all year, so it can be tough for a contender to pull off.  The Rays paid $25K to take Morlan back; a deal could not be reached to keep him with Milwaukee. 

Morlan, 23 in March, posted solid numbers in Double A last year for the Rays.
