DiFelice, Medlock back to Durham

LAKE BUENA VISTA—The Rays will get to hold onto the two players they have designated for assignment in the last week. Catcher Mike DiFelice and right-hander Calvin Medlock both cleared waivers and will report to Durham.
I don’t imagine the odds of Medlock ending up in a Rays uniform this season are all that good, but the way catchers seem to get hurt around here, I can imagine DiFelice might be back—and that would please a lot of folks in the Rays’ clubhouse. The guy did an outstanding job in the couple of weeks he was here.
