Rhymes called up, Farnsworth moved to 60-day DL

INF Will Rhymes has been called up from Durham and is en route to St. Petersburg tonight to take Evan Longoria's spot on the Rays roster.

To make room to add Rhymes, a former Detroit Tiger, to the 40-man roster, the Rays moved injured closer RHP Kyle Farnsworth from the 15-day to the 60-day DL, which pushes his return from an elbow strain to June 5.

Rhymes, primarily a second baseman, was in spring training with the Rays and was hitting .231 with one homer and 7 RBIs at Triple-A Durham.
