James Loney has a new addition to his family. The Tampa Bay Rays first baseman and his wife, Nadia, welcomed son Jordan James on Thursday night, the team announced Friday. The child weighed 8 pounds, 2 ounces and is the couple's first. On Friday, Loney was placed on the three-day paternity list, and infielder Ryan Roberts was recalled from Triple-A Durham prior to the Rays beginning a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. Loney, in his first season with Tampa Bay, has hit .315 with nine home runs and 43 RBI. You can follow Andrew Astleford on Twitter @aastleford or email him at aastleford@gmail.com.
