ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -The Tampa Bay Devil Rays optioned reliever Jon Switzer to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday night, to open a roster spot for injured closer Al Reyes.
The Devil Rays plan to reinstate Reyes, who has been out since July 3 because of a mild rotator cuff strain, from the 15-day disabled list before Wednesday night's game with the Los Angeles Angels.
Reyes is 1-1 with 17 saves and 4.09 ERA in 34 games. He allowed one run and two hits over one inning in a minor league rehab start Monday with Class A Vero Beach.
``It feels good,'' Reyes said Tuesday. ``I threw all my pitches.''
Switzer was called up from Durham on July 4. He appeared in three games, allowing five runs in 1 2-3 innings. The left-handed missed the first two months of the season because of a left shoulder injury.
