Rays opt for 8-man bullpen, keep Eveland and Farquhar, option Mahtook

2

April

The Rays opted to go with an eight-man bullpen in setting their opening day roster, adding veteran LHP Dana Eveland and keeping RHP Danny Farquhar.

As a result, OF Mikie Mahtook and RHP Andrew Bellatti were optioned to Triple-A.

Also, as expected, RHPs Brad Boxberger (core muscle surgery) and Alex Cobb (Tommy John surgery) were placed on the 15-day DL. Cobb can be moved to the 60-day DL if the Rays have a full 40-man roster and need a spot.

The Rays will wait until the Sunday noon roster deadline for resolution with 1B James Loney, whom they told earlier in the week he will be either traded or released.

So here is the Rays opening day roster:
