In the move, the Rays option Dukes to the minor leagues (no specific team yet) and place him on the temporary inactive list.
Just this past week, the troubled outfielder sounded off on a local radio station, about his recent problems.
In the meantime, the Rays have called up OF Dustin Mohr from AAA Durham. They also move outfielder Rocco Baldelli from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL
