ST. PETERSBURG There won’t be an official announcement today, but the Rays are expected to call up pitcher Jeremy Hellickson, outfielder Desmond Jennings and catchers Dioner Navarro and Jose Lobaton on Wednedsay when active rosters are expanded to 40 players.

Additionally, newly acquired designated hitter/utility man Brad Hawpe is expected to join the team, and veteran outfielder Rocco Baldelli will be selected from Triple-A Durham, which will require a roster move.

Lobaton may be headed to the disabled list, which could allow the Rays to add a player to the postseason roster later.
