The Devil Rays added former Biscuits reliever Jeff Ridgway to their 40-man roster today. They also released Kevin Witt, the first baseman who led the minor leagues in home runs this year at Class AAA Durham.
Ridgway was with Montgomery early this year before moving up to Durham. The left-hander played for Team USA in an Olympic qualifier in Havana at the end of the season. The Americans beat the Cubans to win the tournament.
