Glover activated; Birkins sent down

RHP Gary Glover, coming off the DL with shoulder tendonitis, will be activated Monday and be available for the start of a four-game series with the Yankees.

To make room for Glover, the Rays sent down LHP Kurt Birkins.

Glover was 0-1 with a 1.69 ERA in nine games before going on a rehab stint. He had some rest, and a cortizone shot, threw for the first time last Wednesday and felt no problems.

Birkins appeared in six games for the Rays, giving up just five hits in 10 innings (.90 ERA).
