Switzer sent out

Following the game, the Rays optioned LHP Jon Switzer to Durham. That cleared a spot to activate Al Reyes from the disabled list tomorrow. Switzer originally replaced Reyes on the roster two weeks ago. He appeared in three games, allowing five runs in 1 2/3 innings.
The Rays are still carrying an extra position player, with no fifth starter on the roster. They’ll have to make at least one move to get J.P. Howell back for Saturday’s doubleheader and possibly another starter as well.
