Friday Rays Org Moves

RHP Damion Carroll, Rays 2012 6th round pick, assigned to the GCL Rays.

RHP Kris Carlson, 2012 35th round pick, assigned to the Charlotte Stone Crabs from the GCL Rays.

C Chad Nacapoy, 2012 38th round pick, assigned to the Princeton Rays.

Charlotte Stone Crabs placed RHRP Nate Garcia on the 7-day disabled list.

Durham Bulls activated SS Tim Beckham from the restricted list.

Rays optioned OF Rich Thompson to the Durham Bulls.

Rays recalled RHRP Brandon Gomes from the Durham Bulls.

Rays placed OF Matt Joyce on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 20th (lower back tightness).

Rays activated IF Jeff Keppinger from the 15-day disabled list. Was on a rehab assignment with the Durham Bulls.

Rays designated IF Drew Sutton for assignment. This removes him from the 40-man roster.

Rays activated recently claimed IF Brooks Conrad. He is added to both the 40-man roster and the Rays 25-man roster.

Rays RHRP Joel Peralta dropped the appeal of his 8-game suspension. Rays will operate with a 24-man roster until the suspension ends.


  1. Kris Carlson pitched from the Stone Crabs last night. Today says he's been sent back to the GCL Rays.

  2. Also on Saturday RHP Alex Keudell (27th round) and OF Andrew Toles (3rd round) have officially been added to the Princeton Rays roster.

  3. Lenny Linsky has been assigned to the Charlotte Stone Crabs from GCL Rays rehab.

  4. One last note on the Rays: since there is a doubleheader on Sunday they can add a 25th man to the roster. For DHs you can add an extra, so normally 26 total, but with Peralta suspension Rays can go up to 25 from 24. Phillies can go to 26. Haven't heard who Rays are adding, would guess another RP.

  5. Torres to Rays for who knows what on Sunday. Since Torres was scheduled to start for Durham they have brought Matt Buschmann up from Montgomery to start Sunday. Buschmann was scheduled to start for Biscuits, not sure who will now, guessing Barnese or Cruz.

  6. Stacy Long says it'll be Cruz on Sunday.

  7. BG has a closer.Linsky hasn't contributed to that roster all season.Don't you think he was added to Port Charlotte because of the proximity and they can keep an eye on his rehab?

    1. Who is the closer for B.G. Hubbard blows another save for the the Hot Rods one of many this season.

    2. They should let McEachern close imo!
