Dukes off Tampa Bay roster

Elijah Dukes is off Tampa Bay's roster, but the Rays haven't announced how they disposed of him.

According to the Tampa Tribune and St. Petersburg Times, Tampa Bay hasn't said if Dukes will be designated for assignment or is going on the restricted list. The Rays are having a closed-door team meeting that starts right now (3 p.m. Central).

Dustan Mohr has been promoted from Class AAA Durham. He had to be added to the 40-man roster, so he takes Dukes' spot.

Dukes' locker was cleaned out and his equipment loaded into a storage bin, according to the reports.

UPDATE: Mohr is taking Rocco Baldelli's spot on the 40-man roster. The Rays transferred Baldelli from the 15-day DL to the 60-day. Dukes stays on the 40-man roster.
