Freshman PG Josh Heath, a former Tampa Prep standout who was starting by season's end, has been granted his release from USF and is exploring his transfer options.

Heath, who had 62 assists and 27 turnovers in 17 games this past season, will be immediately eligible at his future school, his dad said.

    Rookie RHP Jake Faria had his lucky rubber duck — OG, the original one he has had since high school — with him, and the Rays had nothing to worry about as he put his rocky Wednesday outing well behind him, working into the eighth while scattering seven hits.
