Rays reliever Chad Bradford, with the Biscuits on a rehab assignment, is away from the team for the birth of his third child.
Bradford and wife Jenny, who live in Raymond, Miss., already have a son, 14-year-old Keller, and daughter, 9-year-old Lanie. The new addition is a boy, Bradford said last week, though he and his wife hadn’t settled on a name.
Bradford was scheduled to make his second appearance for the Biscuits on Saturday at Birmingham. Team spokesman Jon Laaser said Bradford has been away from the team since Friday.
There is no news on the birth.
