The Rays announced plans to add 5 players to their roster:
RHP Steve Geltz
LHP Justin Marks

To create a 40-man roster spot, they will DFA C Hank Conger, who was on the opening day roster and was sent to Triple-A at the All-Star break.
They did not call up INF Tim Beckham or INF/OF Taylor Motter, but said there could be further moves going foward in September.
