Rays 5/26/14 Starting Lineup
- The Rays have placed Brandon Guyer on the 15-day DL (left thumb fracture), and corresponded by recalling RHP Alex Colome who was recently activated from a 50-game suspension. The Rays expect Guyer to be out for three weeks. Joe Maddon said Guyer was “pretty distraught” when knew he’d be placed on the DL. Per Joe Smith of the Times, Colome said he was surprised and grateful to get the call-up so soon after suspension. Feels strong, ready, and comfortable in the pen. Tampa Bay needed length/coverage in the pen after weekend, and Colome can go long or short in the mid-to-late innings.
- Erik Bedard will try to hold it down again tonight, when the Rays take on the Blue Jays in the series opener. Hey guys, how’s about giving Bedard a win, eh? You can read about tonight’s match up, and so much more, in our series preview.
- RHP Juan Sandoval has been released by Tampa Bay.
