Rays send down Taylor Motter, will activate Steven Souza Jr. on Saturday

INF/OF Taylor Motter experienced the thrill of pitching in a big-league game on Friday, but then the disappointment of being demoted back to Triple-A.

Motter was sent down after Friday's game, as the Rays plan to activate Steven Souza Jr on Saturday.

Souza has been out since June 14 with a left hip strain. He played one rehab game on Friday for advanced Class A Charlotte.

Motter, who allowed a hit and then got the final out of the ninth, was hitting only .188 in 33 games, with two homers and 9 RBI.
