Chad Orvella is back with the big league club to replace the spot opened up by the demotion of Jason Hammel. This move gives the Rays 8 pitchers in the bullpen for the upcoming series against the Red Sox, but leaves them with only 4 starting pitchers. The team will not need a fifth starter until Saturday in Texas. The team will then need to decide if Orvella, who was expected to make the club out of spring training, will be sent back to Durham, or if his spot in the pen is permanent. Dan Miceli has converted 3 of 4 save opportunities, but his ERA is north of 9 (9.53). We would not be surprised if Orvella is here to stay and receives the occasional save opportunity.
