ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays have designated reliever Josh Lueke for assignment and recalled right-hander Kirby Yates from Triple-A Durham.

The moves were made before Saturday’s game against Seattle.

This is Yates’ first major league call up. He was 1-0 with a 0.36 ERA and converted all 16 save opportunities this season for Durham.
