Tyler Bortnick Acquired From Rays For Ryan Roberts


In what was rumored and expected after Ryan Roberts was DFA'd earlier today, he was dealt to the Tampa Bay Rays for SS/2B Tyler Bortnick, who will report to Triple-A Reno. Roberts is expected to get a lot of playing time with the Rays as Evan Longoria is still sidelined.

Going by his B-R page, the 25 year old Bortnick is a speedster, accumulating 131 steals in four minor league seasons. He was in his first year of Double-A with the Montgomery Biscuts in the Southern League. He was hitting .253/.352/.385 with 4 homers and 48 RBIs
