Rays to recall 4 before Red Sox series
DETROIT -- Pitcher Andy Sonnanstine is among four players Tampa Bay plans to recall from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday.
The right-hander won 13 games last season but was demoted in June after going 6-7 with a 6.61 ERA in 15 starts. He'll start Tuesday when the Rays welcome Boston, whom Tampa trailed by 5½ games in the AL wild-card race before Monday's game at Detroit.
Rays manager Joe Maddon said Monday that catcher Shawn Riggans, outfielder Fernando Perez and pitcher Jeff Bennett also will join the club before it begins the three-game series against the Red Sox.
