Scelfo, Murrill, Kubiak released by Rays

The Rays released three players today, including two who were in line to start the season for the Biscuits.

Outfielders Anthony Scelfo and Chris Murrill and right-handed pitcher David Kubiak were dropped by the organization. Scelfo and Murrill were expected to be with Montgomery.

Scelfo hit .253 last year, his second at high-Class A Charlotte. He was an eighth-round draft pick in 2008 from Tulane, where he also played quarterback.

Murrill was a .279 hitter in just 45 games last season for the Stone Crabs. The Mobile native was a 35th-rounder in 2009.

Kubiak was a 36th-round pick last year and had a 3.20 ERA in 25 1/3 innings between the GCL Rays and Princeton.

I think that the Rays have made a huge mistake by releasing Murrill. He was one of the best players. What cause you didn't invest a lot of money in him so you guess you had to let him go with NO good reason. Yea that is BS! This is obsurd and I cannot believe that upper management who doesn't play the game of baseball and probably no clue of baseball can make moves like this. Oh yea i forgot because you have money big whoop. Who cares you need to look at the numbers not the money!
