- Catcher Curt Casali going back. As we've noted, he's been doing a terrific job lately. His only concern may be that he will be the only one in St Petersburg who has caught ...
- Knuckleballer Eddie Gamboa. Very pleased to see Gamboa get the call. It will be his first. And the callup puts him on the 40-man roster as well. No word on who might be going off the Rays 40-man, but they might have had an open slot.
- Reliever Ryan Garton is going back up. He's been going back and forth all year. No surprise there.
- Jamie Schultz went on the disabled list yesterday (pulled groin?) and
- Reliever Steve Geltz was optioned back.
- We mentioned this morning that infielder Tim Beckham was optioned down.
