ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -The Tampa Bay Devil Rays optioned struggling reliever Shawn Camp to Triple-A Durham on Saturday, one day after Grant Balfour was obtained from the Milwaukee Brewers.
Camp was 0-3 with a 7.20 ERA in 50 games. Balfour was in uniform for Saturday night's game against Boston. Tampa Bay sent minor league reliever Seth McClung to the Brewers in the trade for Balfour completed late Friday night.
Devil Rays All-Star left fielder Carl Crawford was out of the lineup Saturday night because of a sore right wrist. He was hurt diving for a ball Friday night.
Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said Crawford would be a game time decision on Sunday.
``He's a little bit sore,'' Maddon said. ``We'll have to wait until tomorrow to see. He's going to get a lot of treatment. We'll see if the treatment helps by tomorrow.''
Camp gave up three runs and four hits in two-thirds of an inning in the Devil Rays' 7-1 loss to Boston on Friday night.
``He's been a great member of this group and I really do like having him around here,'' Maddon said. ``It's just a matter that it wasn't working right now. This does not mean he's out of the plans in the future. We just need to get him going, get him back on track and see how it all works out.''
Balfour was 0-2 with a 20.25 ERA in three games with Milwaukee. He also appeared in 24 games at Triple-A Nashville, going 1-1 with five saves and an 1.69 ERA.
