Rays Remember Former Bullpen Catcher With Ribbon On Uniform,

The Tampa Bay Rays will wear stickers on their helmet and a green ribbon on their uniform for the month of May, which is Mental Health Awareness Month, to remember former bullpen catcher Jean Ramirez, who died in January by suicide.  The pitcher’s mound at Tropicana Field will also have Ramirez’s number 98 stenciled on it for today’s game.

Roster Moves Abound To Start May

Tampa Bay made a pair of roster moves Sunday, first selecting the contract of pitcher Robert Duggar from Triple-A Durham and designating reliever Javy Guerra for assignment, then placing first baseman Ji-Man Choi on the 10-day injured list and recalling infielder Isaac Paredes.
