As reported by beat writer Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, the Rays have finalized their one-year, $2.75 million free agent contract with Luke Scott.

Dane De La Rosa, who allowed seven earned runs in five innings of relief last season with the Rays, was designated for assignment to open up a roster spot.

Scott batted .229/.285/.439 with 14 home runs and 55 RBI in 344 plate appearances last summer for the Rays. He is expected to serve as the club’s primary designated hitter against righties in 2013.
