Share/Save/Bookmark

BALTIMORE — The Tampa Bay Rays have optioned left-hander Jeff Beliveau to Triple-A Durham and recalled right-hander Brad Boxberger from their top minor league club.

The moves were announced Monday before the Rays faced the Orioles.

Beliveau was recalled on Sunday to replace right-hander Alex Cobb, who put on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain. Beliveau pitched a scoreless inning against Cincinnati, his second appearance of the season.

Obtained during the offseason in a January trade with San Diego, Boxberger had a 1.29 ERA in six spring training games with Tampa Bay. He was 1-0 with a 1.35 ERA in four games with Durham.

The 25-year-old pitched in 18 games with the Padres last season.
