Pitcher Dan Miceli, who made a rehab stop with the Biscuits last year, was released by the Rays today. That puts the big-league camp at 33 players and two days to make the final cuts to 25.
Tampa Bay also gave five minor-leaguers their release this morning, including the son of one of their big-league coaches. Pitcher Billy Evers is the son of Rays bench coach Bill Evers and had been in the organization the last three years. Pitchers Jason Cayton, Chad Pendarvis and John Skaggs and catcher Thomas Lagreid were the other releases.
Including the three pitchers sent down from the majors Wednesday, Tampa Bay now has 68 pitchers, 16 catchers, 31 infielders and 21 outfielders in its minor-league camp.
