RHP Josh Lueke has been sent to the Bulls from the Rays. Leuke actually started the season on the Bulls roster, but, as far as I know, he never put on a uniform. He’s had just two appearances with the Rays, in relief, 2⅓ innings, 9 hits, 7 earned runs, you do the math (OK, I will, that’s an ERA of 27.00). He is without a doubt a better player than that.
The Rays called up Dane De La Rosa, which confirms that they surely know a lot more about baseball and their players than I do. Just from looking the stats, Dane was the least likely Bulls reliever on the Ray's 40-man roster to be called up. Gomes, Ramos, and Gaun all had better numbers. I like him. Here's hoping he is able to take advantage of the opportunity.
RHP Adam Liberatore has been called up from Montgomery. Liberatore is in only his third season of professional baseball and has been used almost exclusively as a reliever. He is not mentioned on the Rays Prospect website, so I guess that we will see what we see. He does not fill the hole made by Bryan Augenstein's trip to the disabled list. Hard to guess what will happen there.
I do have to note that Craig Albernaz pitched another scoreless inning last night.
