The Tampa Bay Rays announced on Wednesday that right-handed pitcher Luis Patino has been placed on the 10-day injured list due to a laceration on his finger. Along with Patino, the Rays also put left-handed pitcher Cody Reed on the 10-day IL.
To replace both of their spots on the 26-man roster, Tampa Bay recalled pitchers Louis Head and Trevor Richards from Triple-A. The Rays will also have outfielder Kevin Kiermaier back in the starting lineup, who missed time with a left wrist sprain.
