Durham's Richard promoted to Rays; Pena hurt

First baseman Chris Richard was promoted from Triple-A Durham to the Rays after Durham's regular-season finale today. He was last in the majors in 2003 with the Colorado Rockies and signed with the Tampa Bay organization in 2007.

The Rays will have to add Richard to their 40-man roster and, based on what happened today in New York, may have a spot.

Carlos Pena left this afternoon's game at Yankee Stadium and could have a broken hand.

UPDATE: Pena is out for the season with two broken fingers.
