Rays call up Teaford, option Riefenhauser

NEW YORK -- The Rays optioned left-hander C.J. Riefenhauser to Triple-A Durham and recalled left-hander Everett Teaford from Durham on Saturday.

First baseman Marc Krauss was designated for assignment to make room for Teaford on the 40-man roster.

Teaford appeared in one game for the Rays earlier this season, giving up a run on four hits over 2 1/3 innings.

Riefenhauser is 1-0 with a 9.95 ERA in six games with the Rays this season.

Krauss was acquired in a June 25 trade that sent Minor Leaguer Kyle Winkler to the Angels. He had one hit in 10 at-bats while playing in four games for the Rays.
