Torres demoted, Beliveau promoted, Odorizzi next

The Rays took the next move in a multi-step shuffle to get their pitching staff back to full strength and replace injured David Price in the rotation.

After Saturday's impressive outing, LHP Alex Torres was optoned back to Triple-A Durham, and reliever LHP Jeff Beliveau was promoted.

Beliveau, acquired last month from Texas, is likely only here for the day, an extra arm to help out a bullpen that has been shorthanded due to heavy use.

After today's game, Beliveau is set to be sent back to Triple-A Durham so the Rays have room to add RHP Jake Odorizzi, who will start on Monday in Toronto in Price's place.
