The Rays exercised their option on stopper Al Reyes and declined to do the same with Greg Norton today. They also put their three 60-day DL guys -- Rocco Baldelli, Shawn Riggans and Ben Zobrist -- back on the 40-man roster, as required at this point.
Reyes had 26 saves this year for Tampa Bay. Norton, who had a rehab stop with the Biscuits for a knee injury, could still re-sign with the Rays. Had Norton not went down with a knee injury on the final day of spring training, Carlos Pena (.282, 46 home runs, 121 RBIs) would not have made the team.
