Tampa Bay's Rupe Placed 60-Day DL
Sep. 12, 2000
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) _ Tampa Bay Devil Rays placed right-hander Ryan Rupe on the 60-day disabled list because of a blood clot in his right shoulder.
Rupe was hospitalized last week after a blood clot was discovered above his right biceps on Wednesday. He underwent a procedure to have an arm vein opened to improve blood flow.
The Devil Rays recalled outfielders Randy Winn and Ozzie Timmons along with catcher Toby Hall from Durham of the International League.
Winn and Timmons have appeared in the majors previously. Hall will be making his major league debut.
The Devil Rays also designated left-handed pitcher Mike Duvall for assignment. Durham manager Bill Evers has also been added to the coaching staff for the remainder of the season.
