Dane De La Rosa to join bullpen

19

July

RHP Dane De La Rosa is the next pitcher to be called up by the Rays to make his major-league debut.

De La Rosa, 28, will join the bullpen tonight. He is already on the 40-man roster - which is a factor in his promotion over others such as Lance Cormier - and was 4-3, 3.86 in 35 games for Triple-A Durham, striking out 50 and walking 21 in 46 2/3 innings.

De La Rosa is an interesting story, as we wrote about in spring training, having spent 2005, and 2007-09 in the independent leagues after initially giving up baseball to sell real estate in 2006.

De La Rosa will wear No. 49.
