Reyes activated, Dohmann cut

The Rays finally activated Al Reyes from the 15-day disabled list today, making room for him by designating Scott Dohmann for assignment.
This was a tough call for the Rays, who like what Dohmann has done despite a couple of rough outings recently that have kicked his ERA up to 6.14. They can only hope he’ll clear waivers in a world that always needs reliable relievers and agree to report to Durham.
“I know they’d love to keep me – I’d love to stay,” said Dohmann. “But the fact of the matter is I have to go through waivers and we all know how that process works.”
Dohmann, 30, pitched well for the Rays after joining the bullpen midway through last season. He went 3-0 with a 3.31 ERA in 31 games and beat out Grant Balfour for the last bullpen spot this spring. His most notable performances this season came in the Rays’ sweep of the Red Sox at Tropicana Field a couple of weeks ago, when he picked up victories the first two nights by getting David Ortiz to ground into an inning-ending double play one night and striking out Manny Ramirez the following evening.
“We’ll wait and see what the next few days bring,” said Dohmann. “It’s a fun game, but at the same time there’s a business side of it, and there’s only one way to move in this game and that’s forward. That’s where we’re going to move, no matter what happens.”
