25-man not so final

The Rays have announced that infielder Greg Norton will have surgery Monday to repair torn cartilage in his right knee. He should miss at least a month.

Tampa Bay, after finalizing its 25-man roster earlier today, will have to adjust it to fill Norton's spot.

Sunday afternoon, about the time I stopped in Gainesville for a break on the 500-mile drive back, the Rays made the move.

First baseman Carlos Pena signed a major-league contract and the Rays moved pitcher Jon Switzer from the 15-day DL to the 60-day.

A player on the 60-day DL doesn't count against the 40-man roster.
