The Rays announced this evening that infielder/outfielder Sean Rodriguez has been placed on the paternity leave list. No word on whether they asked the hosts from WFAN for permission before doing so.
According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, Rodriguez and his wife are expecting the birth of their fourth child. He’s permitted to be away from the team for 24-72 hours.
The Rays have called up infielder Vince Belnome to take Rodriguez’s place on the active roster.
