Rays set roster: Cruz, McGee + Ramos make team



Manager Joe Maddon said the "roster is set," so that means RHP Juan Cruz and LHPs Jake McGee and Cesar Ramos have made the team.

Cruz, a veteran who was in camp on a non-roster deal, showed he was recovered from 2010 shoulder surgery with a strong spring, allowing one run in 9 exhibition outings and only three hits, for an .097 opponents average.

McGee, one of the Rays top prospects, allowed 10 hits in 12 spring innings but only one unearned run.

Ramos, acquired from San Diego in the Jason Bartlett trade, looked rough at some times and good in others during the spring, but the Rays like his versatility. He had a 6.17 ERA.

Those three join RHPs Kyle Farnsworth, Joel Peralta, Adam Russell and Andy Sonnanstine in an almost totally made over bullpen.
