Rays 5/6/14 Starting Lineup
- Another day, another suspension. Durham RHP Steve Geltz became the latest Rays minor-leaguer suspended for drug issues, given a 50-day ban after a second positive test for a drug of abuse. Geltz was 2-2, 3.86 in 11 games.
- RHP Alex Colome, serving his 50-game suspension after testing positive for PEDs, worked two innings (47 pitches) for the Charlotte Stone Crabs in his first rehab start. He is eligible to be reinstated May 25, likely in Triple-A Durham.
- The Rays have added RHP Brad Boxberger to their bullpen for tonight’s game, taking the spot of the recently DFA’d, Heath Bell. Boxberger has been impressive in his stints with the Rays, slashing 0.00 ERA/2 H/5 BB/7 K in six innings of work. Boxberger gives the Rays depth and more flexibility.
