UPDATE: Lueke is the choice - for now

UPDATE, 3:40: Rays make it official, Lueke called up, Niemann on the 15-day DL.

BREAKING: No official announcement yet from the Rays but word is that Josh Lueke has been called up from Triple-A Durham to join the bullpen tonight.

Lueke started the season with the Rays and struggled, and hasn't done much better since at Durham: 0-2, 8.10 in 11 games, allowing 19 hits and seven walks in 13 1/3 innings, with hitters averaging .339.

Brandon Gomes was another option, but the Rays apparently chose Lueke, who last pitched Saturday.
