Rays get Ruggiano to complete LA trade

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Devil Rays completed their June 27 trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers, receiving Minor League outfielder Justin Ruggiano as the player to be named later.

Ruggiano batted .260 with nine home runs and 45 RBIs with Double-A Jacksonville. Ruggiano, who was selected in the 25th round of the 2004 First-Year Player Draft, has 19 doubles and three triples on the season.

He will report to Double-A Montgomery.

In the trade last month, the Rays acquired starting pitcher Jae Seo and catcher Dioner Navarro in exchange for pitcher Mark Hendrickson, catcher Toby Hall and cash.
