Ruddy gone

Reliever Ruddy Lugo didn't get better quickly enough to save his job. Lugo seemed to emerge from a season-long slump on Saturday and pitched well again on Sunday, but the Rays after the game optioned him to Triple-A Durham. A corresponding move will be announced on Monday, with RHPs Tim Corcoran and Chad Orvella the most likely candidates. Lugo was 2-0 with a 9.28 ERA.
