Another Rays notes goodie

The Rays may playfully call it useless in their pregame notes, but I say bravo.

"FROM THE USELESS INFO. DEPT. -- If Andy Sonnanstine faces Jarrod Saltalamacchia tonight, it will match the most letters (25) of last names from any batter-pitcher combination in the majors this season. ... Saltalamacchia has also faced Chad Billingsley and Mark Hendrickson."

On the serious side, pitcher Casey Fossum was granted his unconditional release today after being designated for assignment Tuesday night.

Sounds like the Devil Rays are clearing a 40-man spot for a soon-to-be-signed pitcher!

Does that mean Fernando Cabrera is picked up?
