Biscuits back to face BayBears

The Biscuits, after getting home from Mississippi about 4 this morning, start a series with the Mobile BayBears tonight at Riverwalk Stadium.

Catcher Jose Lobaton's home debut will wait with Matt Spring getting the start tonight.

The Rays signed pitcher Winston Abreu and sent him to Durham, but there's no news if that will cause a move involving Montgomery. Abreu started the year in the Tampa Bay system before a trade to the Cleveland Indians. He asked for his release this week rather than accept a minor-league assignment.

Johnny Wholestaff will pitch Saturday for the Biscuits, who have not announced a starter for Saturday.
