The Rays announced Friday that minor league pitcher Matt Bush was placed on the restricted list and removed from the active roster and the 40-man roster, the first step in releasing him from the organization.

Executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said Sunday that Bush won’t play for the Rays after his alleged involvement in a DUI hit-and-run with injury that has left Tony Tufano, 72, of Port Charlotte, in critical condition with multiple fractures to his ribs and arms. He remains in a medically induced coma.

Bush remains in the Charlotte County Jail on $1.015 million bail, facing seven charges for his allegedly striking Tufano’s motorcycle while driving an SUV.
