Dane De La Rosa to join Tampa Bay Rays' bullpen

RHP Dane De La Rosa is the next pitcher to be called up by the Tampa Bay Rays to make his major-league debut.

De La Rosa, 28, will join the bullpen tonight. He is already on the 40-man roster - which is a factor in his promotion over others such as Lance Cormier - and was 4-3, 3.86 in 35 games for Triple-A Durham, striking out 50 and walking 21 in 46 2/3 innings.

De La Rosa is an interesting story, as we wrote about in spring training, having spent 2005, and 2007-09 in the independent leagues after initially giving up baseball to sell real estate in 2006.

De La Rosa will wear No. 49.

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.

    BALTIMORE — RHP Alex Cobb pitched well enough to lead the Rays to an 8-3 win over the Orioles on Friday.
