Rays send Shaffer back down to Durham; Romero recalled

The Rays changed their minds about needing a fresh arm in their bullpen and sent rookie INF Richie Shaffer back to Durham on Monday and recalled LHP Enny Romero.

Without making a move the Rays were looking at having only five relievers available tonight, and possibly Tuesday, after Alex Colome worked three innings on Sunday. At times this season the Rays have carried eight relievers.

Shaffer has played only sparingly since his Aug. 3 recall, though likely would have been in the lineup tonight and Wednesday against Houston lefties.
