Rays Moving Close To Deal With Luke Scott

12:12pm: It sounds like the Rays are moving close to a deal with Scott, tweets Topkin.

8:50am: Luke Scott is among the players the Rays have talked about, reported Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times yesterday.  Scott could be a one-year option for the Rays mainly at designated hitter.  Reportedly ten teams aside from the Orioles have shown interest in Scott since he was non-tendered a month ago, but none of them had been revealed until now.  Shoulder surgery ended Scott's season in July.

As we mentioned yesterday, Topkin talked to agent Scott Boras, who said Carlos Pena and Johnny Damon remain possible for the Rays.
