Ryan Doumit Out a Month; Evan Meek Stays with Bucs

Ryan Doumit will be out at least a month, the Post-Gazette reports. That doesn't surprise me -- yesterday, some were reporting ten days, which seemed overly optimistic for a fracture, even a minor one.

The Bucs also swung a deal with the Rays to keep Rule 5 pick Evan Meek, who'd cleared waivers after the Pirates dropped him from their 25-man roster. The deal is for cash. It probably says a good deal about Meek's prospect status that a smart organization like the Rays is willing to trade him for cash.
