Gimenez, Lueke leap from Bulls to Rays

The Rays, as expected, are adding more than Delmon Young from the Biscuits.

Catcher Chris Gimenez and relief pitcher Josh Lueke have been promoted from Triple-A Durham to Tampa Bay's "taxi squad," according to the Bulls.

They almost surely won't be added to Tampa Bay's active roster until Sunday when major league rosters can expand to 40 players.

Lueke has had three stints in the majors this year and has a 4.91 ERA in 14 games. With Durham, the right-hander had an 0.63 ERA and 81 strikeouts in 57 1/3 innings. Gimenez has been with Durham all season and is hitting .224.
