Joel Peralta has dropped his appeal and will begin serving his 8-game suspension immediately. The Rays have also officially added Brooks Conrad to the roster, Jeff Keppinger has been activated from the DL, and Brandon Gomes has been recalled from Durham.
To make room on the roster Matt Joyce has been placed on the DL, Rich Thompson has been sent back to triple-A, and Drew Sutton has been designated for assignment and placed on waivers.
Got that? Good. There will be a quiz during the fourth inning tonight.
