Cliff Floyd on the DL; Justin Ruggiano Called up

I kid you not...another Rays player has been placed on the DL. This time it's slugger Cliff Floyd. It was expected Floyd would hit the DL at some point this season, but we aren't even 10 games in yet. The Heater is reporting Floyd will have surgery on Friday to repair a Torn Meniscus in his right knee. Floyd is expected to miss 6-8 Weeks with the Injury.

The silver lining in this is Justin Ruggiano was called up to replace him and we are big Ruggiano supporters. We are just baffled at the number of injuries to the Rays this young season.
