PORT CHARLOTTE—Jason Isringhausen will be added to the Rays’ 40-man roster and “most likely” open the year on the disabled list, Andrew Friedman said today.
The veteran reliever will rehab in St. Petersburg, with no specific end date specified. Isringhausen is coming back from shoulder surgery and has pitched only six innings this spring.
The move essentially buys time for everyone, most notably giving the Rays a solid contingency in case of early bullpen problems.
As for the other spots, Maddon said the fifth starter is still under discussion (which means the long relief spot is also in limbo) and the final bench spot will likely go to Matt Joyce or Justin Ruggiano.
