Archer, who threw a 30-pitch live batting practice session Tuesday, was very satisfied with the results, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports. "I was happy overall," Archer said. "First time facing hitters. First time working with Sucre. It was overall a really, really good day."
Boxberger caught the eye of manager Kevin Cash in Tuesday's batting practice session, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports. "You saw the depth on his changeup, which was great to see. The ball's coming out of his hand really well."
Beckham, who added first base to his resume last season after having already played at each of the other infield spots, is putting in time as an outfielder this spring, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports. "It's just repetition," Beckham said. "The more comfortable I get out there, the more opportunities I'll get. I don't think it's going to be hard at all. It's not going to be tough learning the position."
Duffy (heel) tracked live pitching again during Tuesday's batting practice session and has also started taking ground balls, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports. "He looked really good," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "I would say from a visual standpoint, just from watching him, today was his best day. He was out here early for early ground balls and was out on the field quite a bit today, so that's obviously a good sign that he's feeling good and we are getting him out on the field more."
Gadea, selected by the Rays with the fourth pick of the Rule 5 draft on Dec. 8, has a legitimate opportunity to secure a bullpen spot this spring despite never having pitched above Low-A, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "We really like him as a prospect," said Rays senior VP of baseball operations Chaim Bloom. "We think he's a good starting pitching prospect, and the fact he has good stuff, has a good changeup and is a strike thrower, we felt he has a chance to stick here and help our team win."
Duffy (heel), who is being brought along slowly after September surgery, tracked pitches Monday and may participate in his first batting practice session Tuesday, Marc Topkin of Tampa Bay Times reports.
