Rays vs. Twins, with Sonnanstine on the DL, Garza an award-winner



UPDATE, 3:43: The Rays made the roster move, putting Andy Sonnanstine on the 15-day DL with a left hamstring strain. Because the move is backdated, he is eligible to return Aug. 7 - which is Saturday in Toronto. Also, Matt Garza was named AL Co-Player of the Week with Toronto's Jose Bautista

DEVELOPING: The Rays are preparing for the first game of a four-game series, and the major-league debut tonight of RHP Jeremy Hellickson.

Still no word on the roster move to add Hellickson to the 25-man roster, but it wouldn't be a surprise if one of the two relievers who haven't been used for more than a week, Lance Cormier or Andy Sonnanstine, were involved, possibly put on the DL.

Rays are also waiting to decide on the status of 1B Carlos Pena (who has a sore right foot) and INF/OF Ben Zobrist (stiff back), with the possibility that Dan Johnson could be brought up as well..
