Andriese to be called up to start for Rays on Sunday

RHP Matt Andriese will be called up to start Sunday for the Rays.

The Rays needed to add a fifth starter by Tuesday, and chose to start Andriese against the Angels primarily right-handed lineup.

LHP Matt Moore, who was to start Sunday, will now face the Mariners on Monday.

RHP Erasmo Ramirez was another option to start Sunday, but Cash said they didn't want to take hin out of the bullpen for five days - Friday and Saturday to prep and then Monday and Tuesday to recover - for one start.

Cash said he wasn't ready to say whether Andriese would stay in the rotation or be sent back down since they could go until May 18 before needing a fifth again.
