ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Hideki Matsui homered in his second at-bat of the season after the Tampa Bay Rays purchased his contract earlier Tuesday from Triple-A Durham. The team announced the move before Tuesday nights game against the Chicago White Sox. Matsui was immediately inserted into manager Joe Maddons lineup, batting sixth and starting in left field. After hitting a fly to left in the second, Matsui connected for a long two-run homer to right during the fourth. It was his first home run since Sept. 19 against Texas while with Oakland. "Youll see him in left field, youll see him as a DH and youll see him pinch hit," Maddon said. "Im just really eager to have him here. A very classy kind of a guy." Matsui, who turns 38 on June 12, played 13 games with Durham after signing a minor league contract with Tampa Bay on April 30. He hit .170 with four RBIs for Durham, where he played in left field four times. "Defensively, I didnt have any issues at all," Matsui said through a translator. "So, I think I was able to get some games in and get ready for this." Matsui has played nine seasons in the major leagues with the New York Yankees (2003-09), Los Angeles Angels (2010) and the Athletics (2011) following a 10-year career with the Yomiuri Giants of Japans Central League. "Its just like with any veteran player," Rays executive vice-president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said. "Were not necessarily looking at stats, how they do. Its just like its spring training. The most important part is that they feel good and theyve got their timing down. He felt like he was now at that point." To make room for Matsui on the roster, the Rays optioned outfielder-designated hitter Stephen Vogt to Durham and transferred outfielder Brandon Guyer from the 15- to the 60-day disabled list. cheap jerseys nfl .
