Colome among three Durham callups

Right-hander set to start vs. Yankees on Monday

Colome among three Durham callups

TORONTO -- Following Triple-A Durham's 4-1 loss to Pawtucket in the International League Championship game on Saturday night, the Rays opted to add three players from Durham for Monday's game: Right-hander Alex Colome, infielder Nick Franklin, and left-hander C.J. Riefenhauser.

Colome will start against the Yankees on Monday. He last pitched Game 2 of the International League Championship Series. He did not get in a decision in the Bulls' 4-3 win.

In addition to Monday night's start, Maddon noted that he hopes to get Colome some work in the bullpen to see what he looks like as a reliever.

Riefenhauser had a stint with the Rays earlier this season, and Franklin came to the organization from the Mariners in the three-team deal that sent David Price to the Tigers.

When asked if Franklin would see some work at shortstop as well as second base, Maddon noted: "Right now, just second. We want to get a decent look."
