Jose Lobaton is headed to Triple-A Durham with Craig Albernaz dropping to the Biscuits in a swap of catchers.
Travel arrangements were easy enough with Montgomery playing a series at the Carolina Mudcats, whose stadium is about 40 miles from Durham. The Bulls also played their home opener Thursday.
Moving Lobaton up also could be a sign that John Jaso will stay in the majors longer than first thought. Jaso went up Tuesday when the Rays put Kelly Shoppach on the disabled list.
Lobaton is on the 40-man roster, so the Rays wouldn't want him sitting on Durham's bench behind Jaso (or vice versa).
