Rays call up RHP Tyler Sturdevant, send down Richie Shaffer



After getting five innings of shutout relief in their 4-3 11-inning win over the Red Sox, the Rays made a move to add a fresh arm to their bullpen, calling up RHP Tyler Sturdevant.

To make room, INF Richie Shaffer was optioned to Triple-A Durham.

Sturdevant is 0-1, 4.08 in 15 appearances over two previous stints with the Rays.

Shaffer was not getting much action after being called up to replace injured INF Nick Franklin.
