The Rays have called up their No. 2 prospect, Willy Adames. The shortstop is the No. 16-ranked prospect according to MLB Pipeline.
Adames is in tonight's lineup for the Rays, batting fifth and playing shortstop against the Red Sox.
Joey Wendle was placed on the paternity list to create a roster spot for Adames.
Adames, 22, was acquired in the trade that sent left-hander David Price to the Tigers in 2014. In 40 games at Triple-A Durham this season, he hit .311/.387/.466 with four home runs. In 2017, he slashed .277/.360/.415 with 10 homers and 11 steals in 130 games for Durham.
Rays starting shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria is currently on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring sustained in a game against the Angels last Thursday.
