Pitcher Richard De Los Santos, after offseason elbow surgery, won't report to camp until Tampa Bay starts its extended spring training program late next week.Time to update the projected Montgomery Biscuits starting rotation. Stacy also notes that Chase Fontaine, obtained along with Willy Aybar from the Atlanta Braves for Jeff Ridgway, has been released.
De Los Santos was 5-5 with a 3.42 ERA with the Biscuits last year and re-signed with the Rays this offseason. Wade Townsend, a former first-round pick who will miss all season after shoulder surgery, also is not yet in camp.
"Wade and Richard obviously are not proficient right now," farm director Mitch Lukevics said. "With that, we're keeping them home until April 8 when we can give them more one-on-one attention."
