The Rays released three players today, including two who were in line to start the season for the Biscuits.
Outfielders Anthony Scelfo and Chris Murrill and right-handed pitcher David Kubiak were dropped by the organization. Scelfo and Murrill were expected to be with Montgomery.
Scelfo hit .253 last year, his second at high-Class A Charlotte. He was an eighth-round draft pick in 2008 from Tulane, where he also played quarterback.
Murrill was a .279 hitter in just 45 games last season for the Stone Crabs. The Mobile native was a 35th-rounder in 2009.
Kubiak was a 36th-round pick last year and had a 3.20 ERA in 25 1/3 innings between the GCL Rays and Princeton.
