Rays set roster - sort of



The Rays set their 25-man opening day roster by placing C Robinson Chirinos and OFs Sam Fuld and B.J. Upton on the 15-day DL, but they included Kyle Farnsworth on the roster - for now.

Farnsworth is stlll expected to be placed on the DL due to elbow soreness, but by waiting the Rays can continue to explore options for his replacement. If they stay internal, they are expected to call up RHP Josh Lueke, but could be exploring a trade for a more experienced pitcher.
