Rodriguez up

Biscuits pitcher Jose Rodriguez isn't with the Biscuits anymore.

The right-handed reliever has been promoted to Class AAA Durham, which means either the Bulls or Tampa Bay Devil Rays have a move to make.

The Rays promoted reliever Chad Orvella earlier this week and said they would demote starter Jason Hammel. Hammel was in the big leagues after regular starter Mark Hendrickson was injured, but Hendrickson is scheduled to be back this week.

Rodriguez's move leaves one player too many at either Durham or Tampa Bay.

(The Biscuits activated left-hander Mike Prochaska to take Rodriguez's roster spot.)

UPDATE: The Devil Rays lost pitcher Justin Miller, who was at Durham, to a Japanese team. That created the spot for Rodriguez with the Bulls.
