The Rays have updated their work lists for spring training and they include one surprise.
Pitcher James Houser, seemingly slated to go to Triple-A Durham this year, is now on the extended spring roster. For someone of Houser's experience, that would hint that he's injured, but he said he's not.
"I feel good," Houser said. "I feel good."
Houser has been limited by injuries the past two seasons with the Biscuits.
One other thing that stood out on the updated work lists: pitcher David Newmann. He missed all of last season after tearing a knee ligament late in spring training and has yet to make his professional debut. He's on the high-Class A Charlotte work list. The left-hander was a fourth-round draft pick from Texas A&M in 2007.
