The Rays made a trade today that affects a former Biscuit.
Tampa Bay pulled former Biscuits pitcher Marcos Carvajal off its 40-man roster after picking up pitcher Jae Kuk Ryu in a trade with the Chicago Cubs.
The Rays sent minor-leaguers Andrew Lopez and Greg Reinhard to the Cubs for Ryu, who made his major-league debut last year. Lopez, an outfielder, was with Rookie Princeton last year, while Reinhard, a pitcher, was with Class A Southwest Michigan.
Carvajal was 2-2 with a 3.86 ERA in 39 appearances with Montgomery last year. He came to the team early in the season in a trade with the Seattle Mariners. Carvajal pitched in the big leagues with the Colorado Rockies in 2005.
The Rays have 10 days to trade, release or ask waivers on Carvajal.
