NEW YORK (AP) — Three years ago, Mike Brosseau was a college graduate surrounded by teenagers on minor league backfields in Florida. His batting gloves were tattered, his cleats falling apart and his bank account essentially empty.This week, he was batting third at Yankee Stadium, facing a Cy Young Award winner in the thick of a postseason race."I don't think anybody would admit they were thinking that would happen," Brosseau said.The thrifty, innovative Tampa Bay Rays believe they have found a hidden gem in Brosseau, an undrafted infielder from Oakland University in Michigan who signed for $1,000 — "about $600 after taxes," he noted — and bolted to the big leagues. Three weeks after his major league debut, the 25-year-old infielder has become a middle-of-the-order option for manager Kevin Cash as Tampa Bay chases the star-studded Yankees in the AL East."He forced our hand," Cash said.A slew of injuries led to Brosseau's initial call-up in late June, and in 14 games entering Thur...
