Guyer callled up; Keppinger to restricted list

UPDATE, 12:34 A.M.: INF Jeff Keppinger was placed on the restricted list due to what the team only said was "a personal matter," which created the opening for Guyer. The Rays said Keppinger's absence is expected to be short-term, possibly even just for one day. The move was not announced until after the clubhouse was closed post-game and the players had left.

BREAKING: OF Brandon Guyer is on his way to New York to join the Rays for Wednesday's game, but it's not clear what move the Rays will make to add him to the roster.

The Rays seem confident OF Desmond Jennings is not headed to the DL, so another player would be either optioned, moved to the DL or otherwise taken off the active roster, whether for paternity leave or bereavement leave.

Guyer is hitting .294 with 3 homers and 13 RBIs at Durham. He recently returned from the DL there due to an ankle sprain.
