Bankston taken off 40-man roster

Wes Bankston came off Tampa Bay's 40-man roster to make room for Justin Ruggiano.

Bankston hit just .238 this year with Class AAA Durham with 15 home runs and 59 RBIs.

With Evan Longoria's emergence at third base pushing Joel Guzman into more time at first base, Bankston wasn't as valuable.

Hey, Stacy, it's Jake from DRays Bay. Just letting you know that Bankston was picked up off of waivers by the KC Royals(like they need another 1B prospect)

Thanks, Jake. Just saw it myself.
